Each Thursday, join us to spend time with a work of art on view in the galleries at the Colby Museum. This week, Marisa C. Sánchez, Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow for Research and Scholarly Engagement at the Lunder Institute for American Art, will facilitate the conversation in Time and Tide Flow Wide: The Collection in Context, 1959-1973. For this discussion, she will focus on “Unsettling Histories,” a section in the exhibition that addresses Indigenous representation within Colby Museum’s collection.
Art Break is a program grounded in the practice of slow looking, an educational approach that asks people to give patient, immersive attention to a work of art as a way to make connections and create meaning for yourself. These looking experiences will be facilitated by museum staff, interns, docents, and special guests.
