First Friday: Why this, not that?

August 5, 2022
4:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Screenprinting collage demo prepared by Katie Parry, Museum Tour Manager. Photo credit: Carlos Avendaño.

In His History of Art, Jay and his puppet companion, Ollie, are often engaged in the age-old debate over what should be considered art and who or what determines its value. Enter the conversation by reflecting on your own experience of art and your own perceptions of value. Participants will use collaged images from the past and present to center the art that matters to them.

Organized in conjunction with Jayson Musson: His History of Art
