Art Break: Bird Party by Bob Thompson

Thursday, November 4, 2021,

Colby College Museum of Art, Lower Jette Galleries

Each Thursday, join us to spend time with a work of art on view in the galleries at the Colby Museum. This week, Diana Tuite, Katz Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, will lead a program, focusing on Bird Party by Bob Thompson, located in the Bob Thompson: This House Is Mine exhibition, Lower Jette Galleries.

Talking as a group about works of art can offer us new ways to see the world, pose difficult questions, get us in touch with our emotions, challenge us with new ideas, and sometimes delight us with beauty. These looking experiences will be facilitated by museum staff, interns, docents, and special guests.
