Still Life – VIRTUAL

Free; registration required

This virtual program takes place via Zoom. Scroll down to below images for registration information.

Join Michelle 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 time period is the artist trying to show? What do you see that makes you say that?
  • What thoughts, emotions, or mood does the artist convey? How?
  • How does this artwork make you feel? 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.
