Met Expert Talks: Celebrating Juneteenth

Join artist Beau McCall, also known as “The Button Man,” as he explores the representation of buttons in The Met collection. McCall creates wearable and visual art by hand-sewing buttons onto mostly up-cycled fabrics, materials, and objects.  His works offer commentary on topics such as pop culture and social justice. View selections of McCall’s work, learn about his artistic connection to Harlem, and gain an understanding of how buttons reflect a celebration of Juneteenth. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions.

Free with Museum admission, though advance registration is recommended.
