Gallery Talk: Portraits of Actors

December 11, 2018
Meet in Gallery 100
Free with museum admission

Actors perform on an ever-changing stage, acting and reacting to other actors. What happens when that performance leaps to the canvas, and an artist must capture that dynamism in a single frozen pose? Join Women’s Board Fellow Alice Boone for an exploration of portraits of actors.
