Take Care with Art After Dark: Gray Areas

November 18, 2020
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Can boys wear pink or brides wear red? Does bright orange make you think of a sunset or a parking ticket?

Using images from the Smart Museum collection, this 90-minute interactive virtual workshop will examine some of the meanings assigned to colors. Join in from home—bring your own box of crayons and a bottle of something colorful to drink, for a spirited discussion and fun coloring exercises.

Nicole Bond is a Lead Museum Educator and Teaching Artist for the Smart Museum. Her most recent presentation was the online Object Chat: 1st Class for the exhibition The Allure of Matter: Material Art from China.

FREE. To help build a community of participants, capacity is limited and advanced registrations is required.
