December 20, 2011
Elliott Kai-Kee, Education Specialist, J. Paul Getty Museum; Rika Burnham, Head of Education, The Frick Collection
Burnham and Kai-Kee, authors of Teaching in the Art Museums: Interpretation as Experience, consider what constitutes a meaningful experience of art, and how museum educators can help to create such encounters. At 6pm Kai-Kee will offer a history of museum education, and at 7pm Burnham will discuss knowledge and freedom in the context of museum teaching. Before the lectures, meet in the Sackler lobby at 2pm for a discussion with Kai-Kee and a book signing and reception with both authors at 5pm. Copies of Teaching in the Art Museum will be available for sale at the signing.
