Art with an Attitude – VIRTUAL

Date:
Friday, August 7, 2020
Time:
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Cost:
Free; registration required

Join Michelle Weitzman Dorf, touring docent, for an interactive conversation about three artworks in our Collection. Before the discussion, find a quiet space. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and let it out slowly. Now open your eyes, and engage with the artworks in the image gallery; click on the thumbnail for a larger image, and spend about 15 minutes looking slowly at each.

  • What’s going on in this artwork? What do you see that makes you say that?
  • What message/meaning do you think the artist is trying to convey in each artwork?
  • What emotion does the artwork inspire in you? What about the artwork evokes that emotion?

Slow Art Fridays

Each Friday at 12pm, docents lead virtual, in-depth conversations about a few artworks in our Collection or special exhibitions. The goal is simple: slow down, discover the joy of looking at art, and talk about the experience with others. Topics, artworks, and self-guided questions are posted on the Museum's website in advance for participants, or for those wishing to have a self-guided experience on their own.

Generous support for this program is provided by Art Bridges.
