Discovering Rural Landscapes – VIRTUAL

Friday, March 12, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Free for Museum Members; $10 suggested donation for non-members

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

Join Megan Pyle, touring docent, for an interactive conversation about three artworks in our Collection and special exhibition Across the Atlantic. 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?
  • Does the artwork suggest any stories or narratives? What are they?
  • Would you want to transport yourself into this artwork? Why or why not?
  • Which one of these three artworks if your favorite? Why?

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.
