INsights & OUTlooks

October 11, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Acknowledging that every museum visitor possesses a unique set of interests and
abilities, the INsights & OUTlooks program offers participants multiple ways to engage with and discover works of art. Through a variety of multisensory, interdisciplinary activities, we will enjoy an in-depth exploration of Franciso Goya’s prints series and create a work of our own. The program is designed for adults and students, ages 15 and older. It will be presented by education staff and artist John Bramblitt who is blind.

Free; advance registration is required.
