Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Online via Zoom


The Face of Islamic Ceramics
Human and animal forms are frequently employed in the decoration of non-religious artworks in many parts of the Islamic world. Join docent Olga Woo for a lively and informative journey through the symbolic, allegorical, and ornate patterns found on ceramics in our West Asian collection.

“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.
