Artbreak: Parlor Sofa

January 19, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

On the third Tuesday of each month, the Curator of Education and/or Education Department staff lead visitors on a thirty to forty-five minutes exploration of one work of art in the galleries. Through a series of close-looking techniques and questioning, this free experience helps build the visitor’s interpretive skills across the comprehensive-range of art periods and canons represented by the BMA’s collections. Stay for lunch at Oscar’s and they will throw in a free dessert!

This month, we will explore Parlor Sofa (1850-55) by John Henry Belter from the Museum’s collection of American art.
