The New Britain Museum of American Art is thrilled to present a very special rendition of the ongoing "An Evening With" program series to celebrate the opening of the Museum's exhibition California Dreaming: Ed Moses, Billy Al Bengston, & Ed Ruscha. Two of the artists highlighted in the exhibition, California art legends Billy Al Bengston and Ed Ruscha, will participate in an insightful panel discussion moderated by Peter Plagens, renowned art critic and artist, who has written for Art in America, Artforum, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, and more.

For an additional cost, a limited number of attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to meet the artists at an intimate, pre-panel reception from 5-6 p.m. Admission for the reception includes admission to the panel discussion with priority seating.
