Guardian of the Flame
Join Docent Neaera Baer to investigate the rich lineage and sacred symbols of a humble yet alluring Sri Lankan Buddha.
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.
