Join Art Insights volunteer lecturers as they share current topics of research and interest. Fifteen- to thirty-minute presentations include focused discussions on particular artists and works of art in the Art Institute’s collection as well as broad thematic lectures.
Art Insights volunteers bring free art enrichment presentations throughout the year to older adult communities that cannot easily visit the Art Institute in person.
Persons with disabilities who would like to request an accessibility accommodation for an Art Institute program are encouraged to send an e-mail to email@example.com as far in advance as possible.
