Lunder Institute Summer Think Tank

Founded in 2023, the Lunder Institute Summer Think Tank is an annual initiative that brings together artists, scholars, museum professionals, and culture-bearers in a fertile space to engage in dialogue. A conversation-based program, the Summer Think Tank raises pressing questions in the field of American art, with the aim of advancing new ideas, methodologies, and relationship building. As an incubator for research and practice, the Summer Think Tank provides a platform for fostering, documenting, and sharing the exchange of knowledge. Though Summer Think Tank conversations are not open to the general public, each discussion is recorded and preserved in our oral history archive for researchers to access.
