Art at Noon

30 October 2019 | 12.30 PM - 1.00 PM

Commentated Viewings
We all respond differently to a works of art; we each experience a painting in our own way. The exchange of views is the central feature of the commentated viewing, offered every other Wednesday at noon. During the brief but intensive encounter with a selected work of art you will learn about the characteristics of the work, the artist, and the corresponding period.

Monday, every other week: 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
