Solitude – VIRTUAL
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?
- What do you think the person in this artwork is thinking? Feeling? Why?
- Do you want to be in this person’s shoes? Why or why not?
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.
