The Weisman Art Museum is proud to present Harriet Bart’s first retrospective, Abracadabra and Other Forms of Protection. Over her more than four-decade career, Bart has commemorated the lives of the forgotten—from the victims of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire to American troops killed in Afghanistan.
