Drop into the galleries and chat with a GRAM docent about artworks on view. Docents will be stationed by a specific work, and guests can stop by to chat with them about the art and artist. This is a fantastic opportunity for art lovers of all ages to explore the many works on view at GRAM. Registration is not required.
In this Gallery Chat, participants can explore the newest exhibition, American Perspectives: Stories from the American Folk Art Museum. Folk artists, sometimes referred to as self-taught artists, are individuals whose talents emerged from personal experience rather than formal training. Their creations are beautiful, diverse, truthful, often utilitarian, and rooted in their individual heritage or community. Docents will share information on the art and artists featured throughout the exhibition.
