Looking at Art: Overcoming the Enigma
When visiting a fine art gallery many people feel overwhelmed or undereducated. This session will contemplate the "invisible” barriers that must be overcome for the general public to develop a comfort level when viewing and discussing art. How this enigma developed and what galleries and museums are doing to dissolve it will also be discussed.
