Dialogues with Artists: Making Judgments

April 24, 2015 - 06:45 pm to 08:00 pm

Mary R. Schiff Library and Archives Reading Room

Diving head first into art? What is your first impression of a piece? Do you walk by a contemporary artwork and simply say you don't like it? Do you make an educated, thoughtful or informed judgment of the work? How does the act of making a judgment educate you and how does this action begin a conversation with the work?


Chat about answers to these questions and learn more during Dialogues with Artists (DWA), an informal discussion with local artists in the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Mary R. Schiff Library, on the 2nd floor of CAM.
