Gallery Talk: Intersections

August 11, 2017
Meet in Griffin Court
Free with museum admission

The theme for this month’s Intersections is Core Values.

Both people and institutions can have core values—principles that define one’s conduct in the world and relationships with others. This month, we’ll consider two iconic Art Institute artworks and their display in the museum to explore the role of core values in guiding action and aspiration.

In this new interactive lecture series, the Art Institute’s encyclopedic collection serves as a catalyst for conversations about urgent social questions and current events. Come ready to participate and create community through dialogue about art. Educators select featured artworks and post them here in advance of each discussion in order to be responsive to an ever-changing world.    

Visit the calendar to view upcoming Intersections programs on the second Friday of each month.
