The seminars are always great and are not to be missed.

We have found the collecting seminars especially good as you tour the exhibit before it opens and an expert in the field gives you a solid overview of the work.
And this year there is a seminar on publishing the photographic book.We’ll bet a few of you would like to check that out.
