'Art Series' video conference
If you are wanting to expand your mind with some free art history education, the Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas is the perfect place to do it. Designed as an event for caregivers, the Art Series from The Cleveland Museum of Art is open to the public.
The video conference format allows for interaction with the Cleveland Museum presenter. The session I attended recently covered the movements of Fauvism, Die Brucke and Dada & Surrealism. With that much ground to cover the session was not in-depth, but the presenter showed illustrative works from each movement, discussing various interpretations and encouraging questions from the audience.
Upcoming sessions are 'Italian Art - Etruscan through to Contemporary' on August 2nd, and 'Ancient American Art' on August 16th. For my earlier post relating to the design of the Center, click here.
