Use your imagination and creative spark to shift your perspective while exploring contemporary art. Rewind to the past or fast–forward to the future. Peer through a magnifying glass or gaze through a telescope. Examine an object, landscape, or system. Look through another person’s eyes. By imagining difference and considering alternative perspectives, students will put into play skills of critical thinking, adaptability, and empathy-building as they dynamically connect with and respond to contemporary art. Take an imaginative leap and join our learning and engagement specialists on this interactive 40-minute virtual field trip to SMoCA.
Please contact Charlotte Quinney, campus engagement coordinator, at [email protected] or call 480-874-4643 for further information or to make a booking.
