Say cheese! Long before the instant digital snapshot was the painted portrait, a time-intensive process for both artist and sitter.
In this month’s Mindful Looking program, cast a lingering look at the meticulous details, elegant figures, and sumptuous setting of The Radcliffe Family with teaching specialist Molly Medakovich.
Join us on the third Tuesday of each month for Mindful Looking, a program that invites you to slow down and spend time with a single work of art.
Discover overlooked details, explore ideas, and make connections as we linger, look, and discuss.
