Language of Art
Language of Art is DAI’s book club series for adults, young adults and lifelong learners. An Educator or Curator selects a reading and guides an hour-long discussion that connects the book’s themes to collection artworks or to exhibitions. This program explores a diversity of literary genres and is open to readers of all interests, from book-lovers to newcomers.
