Art Seminar Group is devoted to the study and appreciation of the arts

Art Seminar Group (ASG) offers an extensive program of weekly lectures across a broad range of art and art history including the visual arts, theater, film, architecture, music and dance. Our lecturers include prominent art historians, curators, academics and other experts. In addition our members-only events include local excursions, East Coast and national trips, and one international experience each year.

A full calendar for members and subscribers is available on the private side of the website. We welcome guests who’d like to learn more about ASG membership to attend up to three lectures before joining us.
