Here’s a look at what you’ll see, daily, on the CAM Connect Facebook page

 

I’m Andrew Palamara, a member of the Learning and Interpretation department at the museum.

Today’s Artwork is Springtime by John Henry Twachtman. I chose this painting because the Spring Equinox is tonight! Even though we’re all forced to spend a lot more time indoors right now, we can still take solo walks outside and enjoy the change of the seasons. 

Take a long, deep look at this painting. Start from the bottom left corner and let your eye wander across the rest of the painting. What kinds of feelings or sensations does this painting give you? View full post on CAM Connect

Today’s #CAMLook is brought to you by Trudy, Curatorial Assistant for South Asian Art, Islamic Art & Antiquities. A recent road trip home made her think about this work by Sohrab Hura and things that make us feel like we are home. So, what signifies home for you? View full post on CAM Connect
