Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Loss and Resilience: Traditional and Contemporary Burmese Art 


How are artists surviving under a brutal regime, and supporting protests movements, in today's Burma (Myanmar)? In this Takeout Tuesday, Burmese-born docent Cleo Appleton and Burmese artist and arts organizer Chaw Ei Thein, whose work is included in After Hope: Videos of Resistance, illuminate the role of the arts in fighting oppression. 

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.
