Haywood Turnipseed, Writer and Stand-up Comedian

Many museum visitors spend only a few seconds looking at a work of art. Find out what you can discover when you spend an hour exploring a single work of art! Each month, our museum educators and special guests will lead a 60-minute guided discussion of a masterpiece from the Gallery’s collection—all from the comfort of home. The only things you’ll need to pack are your observation skills, imagination, curiosity, and creativity!

This month, we’ll be joined by Haywood Turnipseed Jr., a writer and stand-up comedian, who will guide us to find the humor and laughter in art.

Registration is required for this free program. An adult is required to attend the session alongside the child(ren). This topic is offered four times; please choose one session to attend.
