Public Tour: Figures of Myth and Legend

March 21, 2021
2 pm (CDT)

Join us for live, interactive tours on Zoom. Student educators design and lead virtual tours featuring several artworks in the Kemper Art Museum collection, showing images of the artworks through screen sharing and answering participant questions.

This tour considers how artists working in various artistic mediums have connected figures from ancient Greek and Roman mythology to their own historical contexts.

This hour-long tour is free, but registration is required (link to come).


Support for this program is provided by Women and the Kemper.
