Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Here, Kitty Kitty

Join Docent Peggy Mathers to meet a variety of cats caught napping in the museum collection, including felines painted on silk or sculpted of jade or ivory.


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.
