2 – 3 pm
Exhibition Galleries

Join us for a weekly series of in-depth explorations of select works of art on view in Scenes from the Collection, the Museum’s rotating collection exhibition featuring nearly 600 works from antiquities to contemporary art — many of which are on view for the first time.

Explore contemporary portraits in the collection with Theresa Hioki, Education Associate. Learn how the artists Chantal Joffe, Kehinde Wiley, and Joan Semmel use photography to achieve photo-realism in painting.

Included with Museum Admission; RSVP Recommended
