Language of Art

Program Update: Language of Art has been adapted as a virtual experience due to COVID-19. Check back often for updates about upcoming virtual programs.

In this literature program, members of the Education and Curatorial departments take turns selecting a book and guiding an hour-long discussion connecting the book’s themes and content to our collection galleries and Special Exhibitions. We are expanding the program to include more books and genres! We hope you will join us and share your suggestions for the future.
