Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

What a Dog!


Even cat people will have to agree these dogs are essential companions. Join docent Peggy Mathers to explore dogs in Asian art across mediums, time periods, and cultures.

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.
