In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Annie Leist, associate educator in Community, Access, and Teen Programs, discusses Andrew Wyeth’s depiction of a person with a disability in Christina’s World—and asks us to consider both the joys and limitations of his approach.
