Bernice Bing: Bridge Between Opposites
Join docent Michelle Wilcox to explore the art and amazing life of Bernice “Bingo” Bing (1936–1998), a queer Chinese American artist from San Francisco who is just now beginning to receive recognition. We'll consider Bing's contributions to Abstract Expressionism, the impact of Zen Buddhism on her work, and her support of Bay Area arts organizations.
ABOUT TAKEOUT TUESDAYS
“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.
