Virtual Talk | In a New Light: A Fresh Look at the Taft Collection
Thursday, August 18
Just as the city surrounding the historic Taft Museum of Art has changed, so has the approach to curatorial practice and the interpretation of art history. Join Associate Curator Tamera Lenz Muente and Assistant Curator Ann Glasscock for a discussion moderated by Director of Learning & Engagement Elise Solomon about how the exhibition In a New Light: Treasures from the Taft came together and how it will influence the reinstallation of the collection in 2022.
Self-Guided Virtual Tour | Taft Historic House
While the Taft historic house undergoes a major rehabilitation project, making it temporarily inaccessible to the public, audiences can explore the historic house and its esteemed artworks as they appeared prior to renovation efforts. Several of the works displayed in the virtual tour are also now on view within In a New Light: Treasures from the Taft and Borrowed Gems from the Taft Museum of Art.
