Weeknights at the Wagner

The Institute presents evening lectures as part of the Weeknights at the Wagner lecture series. Distinguished scientists and scholars explore current topics in science, history, and art as well as topics that connect to the Institute's history and its museum collection.

In Fall 2020 and until it is safe to resume indoor gatherings at the Wagner, Weeknights at the Wagner will be held online. However, the online format means we can offer more programs!
