Art Insights provides a historical and enlightening art-enrichment experience for older members of the community who are unable to visit the Art Institute in person. The Art Institute is pleased to partner with Well Connected’s Museums at Home series to provide virtual slideshows and telephone-based Art Insights conversations on a national scale.
