Reading Faces: Selections from Vantage Points – VIRTUAL
Join Hank Bovee, touring docent, for an interactive conversation about three artworks in our special exhibition Vantage Points: Contemporary Photography from the Whitney Museum of American Art. 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?
- Which emotions can you read on each person’s face?
- Looking into each person’s eyes, what do you see?
- How approachable do you think each person is? 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.
