Artful Trivia: Across the Atlantic – VIRTUAL

Thursday, March 18, 2021
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Free for Museum Members; $10 suggested donation for non-members

This virtual program takes place via Zoom. Space is limited; to register, click here.

Do you love pub-quiz nights as much as we do? Then join us for this fun program! Test your knowledge of French and American art, craft, and design from the 19th and 20th centuries in honor of our special exhibition Across the Atlantic. Between rounds, Associate Curator Whitney Richardson shares her favorite works from Across the Atlantic; sommeliers Tom Leiner and Brett Watson from Metro Wines pair wines with paintings in the exhibition; and artist Ben Hamburger demonstrates Impressionist painting techniques. Recruit your favorite trivia partner, brush up on your fin-de-siècle art knowledge, and get ready to delight your senses of sight and taste.

Three Ways to Play!

  1. Make it a friendly competition among those at home with you. Keep track of your answers; correct responses are revealed between rounds. Download your score sheet.
  2. Play for prizes against other participants logging into Zoom. Submit your answers in real time through polls that appear on your screen (download a score sheet to keep track of your answers at home as well!). The winner will be announced Friday, March 19 on our website and social media.
  3. Play for prizes against other participants in Perspective Café. Follow along on the small screen, and submit your answers via our score sheet at the end of the evening. The winner will be announced Friday, March 19 on our website and social media.

No matter which way to play you choose, remember to keep it clean: web searches and reference books not allowed!
