"Art Slam" is a light-hearted look at the behind-the-scenes work that went into preparing the first comprehensive documentation of all 374 works in its European paintings collection. The free, hour-long program mixes facts and fun as participants discover what it took to create this comprehensive look at one of the most significant holdings of the Clark's collection.
Sarah Lees, the Clark's associate curator of European art who spearheaded the ambitious project, will be joined by several of the contributors to the catalogue as they reveal some of the interesting insights and new discoveries that were made during preparation of the two-volume publication. The program includes conversations, games and quizzes, and plenty of opportunities for audience participation. Prizes will be offered during several portions of the event, and light refreshments will be served.
