Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

A Wise and Wrathful Warrior

Join Docent John Andrews to discover how Palden Lhamo, a compassionate yet wrathful woman warrior known as the protector of Tibet’s Dalai Lamas, transforms negative emotions into enlightened awareness.

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.
