November Programs for Teachers

We are gearing up for two exciting programs for teachers this month:

Our first program will be on Saturday, November 7 at 9:00 a.m.  My colleague Logan Acton and I will be leading a teacher workshop on our special exhibitions that take a fresh look at the Museum’s collections through the theme of performance: All the World’s a Stage and Performance/Art.  This workshop starts before the Museum opens to the public, giving teachers the opportunity to explore these exhibitions before other visitors arrive.  Complete details, including registration, can be found on the Web site.

For our Thursday Evening Program for Teachers this month, we will be joining the public lecture Manet, Models, Portraits, and “La Vie Moderne,” given by Dr. Nancy Locke, Associate Professor of Art History, Penn State University, on November 12 at 7:00 p.m.  Admission to this lecture is free for teachers, upon presentation of faculty ID.  Advance registration is not required and seating is limited.  Teachers are welcome to arrive early and join education staff in the “Teachers Lounge” in the Atrium Café.

Information about these and other upcoming programs for teachers can be found at  We hope to welcome you to the Museum soon for one of these programs!

    I would like to thank Molly Kysar and Logan Acton for the deeply appreciated teacher’s workshop “The World’s a Stage”. After having a few minutes to reflect on the exhibition, it all came together in realizing that connections in the performing arts exist in so many levels. They transcend time, space, and even genre, but with a common factor which is the human experience. Somehow putting it in the perspective of the exhibition, you cannot help it but feel as an actor in it yourself through the inclusion of so many cultures and probably one that is your own.

      Thank you so much for your nice comment, Daniel! I’m glad that you could join us for the teacher workshop on Saturday. Logan and I enjoyed the opportunity to talk with you and the other teachers about the works of art in this show. I hope to see you again next time! — Molly
