CLOSE LOOKING & COCKTAILS
Thursday, June 23, 2022
Current members can join Virginia MOCA staff for an in-depth and interactive look at select works of art from our current exhibitions using close-looking techniques. Plus, enjoy an exhibition-themed cocktail from a local mixologist.
A study released in 2017 said that the average museum goer spends 27 seconds with one work of art. Close-looking exercises are an invitation to slow down and use your natural observation skills to discover meaning. Close looking honors the intention of the artist, invites us to make connections, but maybe most importantly, allows us to practice this essential skill that equips us to be more engaged in our everyday lives. Participants will be guided to closely look at works of art while responding to a short series of questions that encourage curiosity.
Free for Virginia MOCA members, registration required.
