This popular series considers objects from more than one point of view. The informal talks, many of them by Harvard Art Museum curators, conservators, and educators and Harvard University faculty members, are designed to stimulate thinking about works of art and encourage participants to explore their own ways of seeing.
Free with the price of admission. Open to the public.
Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
