FOCUS: Critical Conversations with Art - Guided Looking Session

September 17, 2020, 4:00 PM - 4:30 PM

—  The registration for this event has been closed.
Reiman Gallery (lower level), Christian Petersen Art Museum, Morrill Hall


Take a break from the hectic day to slow down and look closely at a single work of art with the guidance of our education team. Engage in discussion and practice critical thinking to learn more about the lithograph Border Crossings by Luis Jiménez and consider how to look at art more generally.

The Critical Conversations with Art exhibition series highlights a single work of art to delve deeply into how we look and how we can develop critical thought, questioning and meaningful discussion through art. With multiple perspectives, backgrounds and ways of looking presented, these exhibitions invite the viewer to think deeply in response to the visual world.
