WWAC and Princeton University Art Museum come together for an exciting and engaging series showcasing some of the Museum’s outstanding collections.
Each session is led by a docent of the museum. Topics range from Contemporary African American Artist, the genesis of the Abstract Expressionist Movement, and more. The docent program at Princeton University Art Museum involves an intensive, one-and-a-half-year training program, consisting of lectures, gallery sessions, research, and presentations to fellow trainees and other docents. Docents then continue their education throughout their years of service by attending docent meetings, participating in study groups, attending gallery talks, and taking trips with fellow docents to other regional museums.
The winter session led by Anna Dombrowski will discuss David Hockey’s work and will take place on December 9, 2020, at 1 pm.
Octogenarian David Hockney continues to create exciting art that incorporates cutting edge technology into his multimedia work. Anna Dombrowski, Docent at PUAM, will discuss a new work in the PUAM collection that features imagery of his evolving practice. Anna has been a docent at PUAM since 2014 and holds a master’s degree in art history and a J.D. She has given Spotlight talks at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Her work at PUAM gives her the opportunity to combine analysis and observation to explore art with guests.
This event is free for WWAC Members, and $10 for non-Members.
