What is live? In the wake of COVID-19 and new social distancing regulations, an unprecedented era of digital programming has emerged, transforming the landscape of public programming and engagement.

In this edition of Art Connects, Stella Lochman, Manager of Public Engagement at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, will discuss this shift towards live, virtual programming. She will also share her current interest in online performative exercises, Happy Hours, Vogue Jams and quarantine dance parties.

This discussion will be in conversation with Melissa Lee, Director of Education and Public Programs, and Stephanie Bokenfohr, Adult Programs Coordinator.
