Takeout Tuesdays: Lunchtime Conversations About Art

Pillow Talk


How would it feel to sleep on a porcelain pillow? Have you ever tucked something under your pillow hoping to be inspired? What if the pillow itself is inspiration? Join docent Linda Lei to learn about 1,000-year-old Chinese ceramic pillows in the museum's collection.

“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.

Takeout Tuesdays are free for members. Not a member? Join today! Use promo code NEWMEM20 for $20 off new memberships.
