Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Jade, Stone of Heaven

Jade — the “stone of heaven” — holds a special place in Chinese history and culture. Join docent Bianca Larson to look closely at a beautiful jade artwork from the museum’s collection, Dragon and Phoenix Presenting a Ritual Vessel.

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.
