Aizen Myoo: What's Love Got to Do with It?
Can earthly desire be a pathway to enlightenment? Find out by exploring a Japanese sculpture of the Buddhist deity Aizen Myoo in this Takeout Tuesday with docent Yoshi Fukamiya.
ABOUT TAKEOUT TUESDAYS
“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.
