Many Become One – VIRTUAL

Friday, July 17, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Free; registration required

This virtual program takes place via Zoom.

Join Hank Bovee, touring docent, for an interactive conversation about three artworks in our Collection and special exhibitions. 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?
  • How do the artworks represent the theme “many become one” both individually and as a group?
  • Which artwork is your favorite? Why?
  • What three words would you use to describe each artwork? Why?

Slow Art Fridays

Each Friday at 12pm while the Museum is closed, 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. Space is limited; to register up to one week in advance, email Kristi McMillan, director of learning & engagement, or call 828.253.3227 x122.
