The Fredi Schiff Levin Lecture Series

Fredi Schiff Levin (1915-2002), untitled (man in landscape), detail, n.d., oil on canvas, PAAM Collection, Gift of John Levin, 2003

The Fredi Schiff Levin Lecture Series welcomes artists, art historians, curators, and authors to speak at PAAM, both in conjunction with exhibitions and as independent scholars.

The series was established in honor of artist Fredi Schiff Levin, an active member of Provincetown’s arts community from the 1960s until her passing in 2002. We extend our deepest gratitude to The Levin Family, who graciously sponsors this series.

This year, we’re welcoming guests back into the galleries for in-person lectures, which are included with Museum admission ($15). Lectures are also streamed live on our Facebook and YouTube channels. Watch previous lectures here.
