For each exhibition, the PRG invites participating exhibition artists to speak about their work, philosophies, and processes.  Each artist talk may also include an introduction and exhibition overview by the Director/Curator of the Paul Robeson Galleries, and is followed by a question-and-answer session.  These talks are scheduled according to level of interest and speaker availability.  If your group or class is interested in scheduling an artist talk, please contact Caren King Choi at 848 445 0506 or carking@rutgers.edu.
