Pop-Up Lecture: What to Look For When You Look at Art
Link to Website
Up your museum game at this pop-up lecture on art theory.
Learn the basic principles of how to approach, analyze, and appreciate great works of art the way an artist would. Included are discussions on viewing art as both a physical object and the expression of an idea, art in the context of its time, and the elements of composition.
Free Fridays at the Whitney will never be the same. You’ll leave this lecture with the vocabulary, framework and tools to have better things to say when you look at art.
