Zoom meeting

Teachers of all disciplines and grade levels can draw on art to illuminate the past and challenge and enrich our understandings of the present. This fall’s monthly series, Art as a Window onto the Past and a Reflection of the Present, will examine artworks from the Johnson’s permanent collection and special exhibitions to prompt discussions of current issues, from the global pandemic to climate change.

Please join Johnson Museum presenters Maryterese Pasquale-Bowen, Carol Hockett, and Elizabeth Yearsley for a lively exchange of ideas! Short readings will be provided prior to our virtual meetings to focus our discussion. Email Carol Hockett with questions or for more information.

In this second session, Making Their Mark: Women Artists in the Johnson Museum Collections, we will discuss Women Making Their Mark. The exhibition looks at the creative history of women expressing themselves in traditional and nontraditional media since the early 19th century—from quilts to samplers, painting to pottery, books to prints—touching on many of the artistic achievements of women during the past two centuries.
