Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Art of Healing Power 


Explore a medieval Japanese painting depicting "The Legend of the Crying Fudo" with docent Yoshi Fukamiya discussing a monk with a mysterious illness. Find out who is the real hero of the story, a yin and yang diviner or the Buddhist deity Fudo Myo’o?”

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 in a Zoom meeting to look closely at compelling works using high-resolution images and learn some fun facts. Each week will focus on a different topic. Simply turn on your microphone to join the discussion.

Closed captions are available. Takeout Tuesdays will be offered every Tuesday while social distancing requirements curtail our on-site programming.
