Just as John Cage “hoped to attune listeners to silence as a structure within musical notation,” this session aims to attune viewers to their mind’s eye as a structure for visualizing art. Closing, veiling, and opening their eyes, participants are led through a series of exercises that demonstrate the power of the imagination and mental imagery in looking, seeing, and interpreting art. Derived from art-viewing techniques for people who are blind or have low vision, these experiences enhance an understanding that we all see, if differently.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
