Online Lunchtime Gallery Series: Reading, Rites, and ‘Rithmetic
February 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
WWAC and Princeton University Art Museum come together for an exciting and engaging online series showcasing some of the Museum’s outstanding collections.
Each session is led by a docent of the museum. Topics range from Contemporary African American Artist, the genesis of the Abstract Expressionist Movement and more.
Docents use their knowledge and passion to make their chosen topics fun and engaging to everyone. The docent program at Princeton University Art Museum involves an intensive training program, consisting of lectures, gallery sessions, research, and presentations to fellow trainees and other docents. Docents then continue their education throughout their years of service by attending docent meetings, participating in study groups, attending gallery talks, and taking trips with fellow docents to other regional museums. WWAC is thrilled to be able to offer these special sessions to members and non-members.
