Art Nights | A Closer Look at “Black Out”

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

5:15 PM cash bar; 5:45 PM program

Art Nights is a monthly evening series that brings the humanities to life through art, literature, music, and dialog. This month, Isabel Gray, Museum Director of School and Academic Programs, leads participants in taking a closer look at a selection of pieces on display in Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now. Participants will learn about the physiognotrace—an instrument used in producing silhouettes—and participate in a hands-on demonstration exploring its functionality and form.

This event is free and open to the public.
