Joining the AMA are Dr. Christa Anne Bentley, Assistant Professor of Musicology at the University of Arkansas; Dr. Chelsea Burns, Assistant Professor of Music Theory at the University of Texas at Austin; and Dr. Paula Clare Harper, Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Chicago. Moderating the conversation will be Lacey Gee of 13: A Taylor Swift Fan Podcast.

In March 2023, 12-time Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift broke the Guinness world record for being the only living artist to have ten albums simultaneously on the US Billboard 200 chart. In June 2023, she achieved that milestone again. All told, 33-year-old Swift has broken close to 100 Guinness records, many of which were set by her in the first place.

Swift’s prolific career and her influence on popular culture are impossible to condense into any meaningful statistics, but to be sure, the collective impact is as profound as it is complex. To help us dig into major themes within the oeuvre of Taylor Swift, the Arlington Museum of Art is thrilled to welcome three music experts for our next Articulate Lecture Series event.

Although this event is free, pre-registration is required because space is limited. No walk-ins, please!
