Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Online via Zoom


The Art of Fans
Hand-held fans are much more than premodern forms of air conditioning. Join docent Doris Chun in a discussion of the artistry and fashion of fans from Japan, China, and Europe.

Free Tickets


“Take out” a taste of art! Join museum docents and fellow art lovers for interactive lunchtime encounters with selected artworks from the collection. We’ll gather on Zoom to look closely at compelling works using high-resolution images and uncover fun facts. Each weekly session explores a different topic. Unmute to join the conversation.
