Art and Empathy

Friday, October 22, 2021

7–9 pm

Meet in the Rubin Lobby, 1st Floor

This event is now at capacity.

Rest and reflect in community as Art and Empathy returns in person with an in-depth exploration of The Obama Portraits. Through close looking, conversation, and art-making, art therapist Sarah Pousty and museum educator Dalila Scruggs make space in the galleries for self-care and connection.

This program is free, but space is limited, and registration is required.

All visitors 12 and older must show proof of vaccination and a valid I.D. Masks are required regardless of vaccination status.
