We See It Differently: Reinterpreting the Museum


Ariadne Asleep on the Island of Naxos, John Vanderlyn, 1809-14.


Which stories museums tell matters. This workshop invites audiences to work with Sarah Beetham, Art History Professor, to reexamine a half dozen works from PAFA’s permanent collection that are ripe for reinterpretation. Participants will find new heroes, question old assumptions and make their voice part of how PAFA’s museum tells a more full story of American Art.
