Artists’ Choices and Why They Matter

Tuesday, Thursday at 12:30

West Building Main Floor, Rotunda

Artists make choices during the creative process.  In a shared endeavor of close looking and dialogue, participants will compare works of art to consider choices such as subject, composition, color, and style as well as the impact of those choices on our experience of the works.  This tour will focus on four to six works of art.
