Art Break: Expectant Gaze — Art from the Eye and Mind Tour with Nancy Sokolove

Monday, August 18, 2008

What a great way to spend your lunch break on a Friday! We learned so much from Nancy Sokolove, Adult Programs Manager, during this tour and found out that we actually were seeing pieces from the Museum’s permanent collection that were going to be put back in the vault to “rest.” Nancy taught us that artworks on paper need time to rest away from the elements. As I write, a team is working to change out these works with other selections from the permanent collection for this exhibition. So, even if you’ve toured the exhibition, come back and get a new taste of the permanent collection. And look for future Art Breaks — they are an excellent way to gain new information and a deeper appreciation for art.
