What Our Staff Is Viewing

Last week, DMA staff got a chance to preview our newest special exhibition, Mind’s Eye: Masterworks on Paper from David to Cézanne, with co-curators Olivier Meslay and Bill Jordan. Because of their delicate nature, many of these works on paper by Delacroix, Degas, Cézanne, van Gogh, Manet, Schiele, Mondrian, Picasso, and more than sixty others are rarely on view. We’re open all week—including July 4—so stop by for what may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see them.

Do you have plans for tomorrow night, Thursday, October 8?  If not, I hope you will join me for a gallery conversation at 7:00 p.m.  All educators are welcome, and the program is free.

This will be our second Thursday Evening Program for Teachers, which is a new series of monthly programs for educators.  We’ll be discussing two paintings in our collection of 18th century French art: The Abduction of Europa by Jean Baptiste Marie Pierre and a new acquisition by Jacques-Louis David, Apollo and Diana Attacking the Children of Niobe.

The program starts at 7:00 p.m., and we will meet in the Atrium Café.  Arrive early and listen to live Jazz in the Atrium.  Tables will be reserved starting at 6:30 for a “Teachers Lounge.”  Food and drink are available for purchase in the Café…bring a friend and make an evening of it. 

Hope to see you there!

Molly Kysar
Head of Teaching Programs
