I Saw It at the Museum

Monday, July 14, 2014, 11:30 a.m.

The Mercedes T. and Sid R. Bass Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 1, fifth floor

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.

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.
