Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Online via Zoom


A Zoroastrian Bowl
A triumphant king, captured warriors, a glorious peacock — images on a ceremonial silver bowl tell ancient tales. Docent Gail Uilkema reprises this popular Takeout Tuesday, unlocking the puzzle and explaining the action of this Zoroastrian Bowl.

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.
