The John Hay and Betsey Whitney Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 3, fifth floor

Train travel took on a whole new dimension in the 20th century, and played a key role in the development of modernism. Join us to explore how Umberto Boccioni and the Italian Futurists were amongst the first modern artists to challenge our perceptions of a world in motion.

Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
