Facilitated Discussion: Perceiving Light and Color - SOLD OUT

Thursday, June 24, 2021 @ 5:30 pm

Join members of the Museum’s education department for an interactive discussion exploring perceptions of light and color. By placing artwork from the Museum’s collections in a historical context, and by considering a work’s technique and materials, participants will explore the relativity of color, the effect of different light sources, and the symbolism of light and shadow in different cultures. In Zoom breakout rooms, participants are encouraged to turn on their cameras and unmute their microphones to join the discussion. Spots are limited and registration is required. THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY RESERVED.

This event will include live closed captions in both English and Spanish. English captions are available directly in the Zoom toolbar by clicking the "CC" icon. To access Spanish-language captioning, open Streamtext, where you can select “Spanish” to see the live captioning.

Para acceder a los subtítulos en varios idiomas, ingrese al seminario web de Zoom durante un evento en vivo, luego abra un navegador web separado para visitar esta página donde puede seleccionar "español" o el idioma de su elección.
