Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Elizabeth Rudy, the Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Associate Curator of Prints in the Division of European and American Art, will give this gallery talk, in conjunction with the exhibition Mutiny: Works by Géricault.

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of drop-in talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Free with museums admission. Gallery talks are limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before each talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
