at home: Paul Mellon Lectures | The Museum and Gallery Today

This year’s series, entitled The Museum and Gallery Today, is exclusively online and features six individual talks from some of the world’s most distinguished museum and gallery directors. The lectures are presented as free live webinars. Registration is required.

Established in 1994, this lecture series was named in honor of Paul Mellon (Yale College, Class of 1929), the philanthropist, art collector, and founder of both the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art in London. Coorganized by the two institutions, the biennial lectures were traditionally delivered in person by a specialist in British art at the both the National Gallery in London and the Yale Center for British Art.
