The placement of an object on a museum wall can lead us to question its authenticity (Is it art?) or its value (“I could do this.”). This session explores these popular responses when experiencing art in a museum.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
