Explore Italian Futurism by taking a closer look at Umberto Boccioni’s Dynamism of a Soccer Player (1913), and its elements of speed, danger, energy, racing, and war. Examine other Futurist works by reading excerpts from the first Futurist Manifesto of 1909.
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.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
