Brilliant Families: Guided Tours!
Some works of art are created to communicate a message or emotion. Other works are composed to create a visually interesting piece without any message. Because there are different reasons art is made there are different ways of interpreting it.
Take a tour around the Fed Galleries. The tour guide will offer information about the concepts and theories behind Abstract Art as a whole and about the art exhibited in particular. We want to share some of the ways to look at art to better understand the artist’s intent and, possibly, your own reaction to a piece of art. The guided tours will pose questions to consider about each art piece to promote different ways to analyze the work and go deeper into the understanding of it.
