Art Break: Sour Diesel on Black Lacquer Table by Travis Boyer

Thursday, January 26, 2023,

Colby College Museum of Art

Each Thursday, join us to spend time with a work of art on view in the galleries at the Colby Museum. This week, Katya Shevchenko, Engagement Fellow, will facilitate the conversation, focusing on Travis Boyer’s Sour Diesel on Black Lacquer Table, located in the Lower Jetté Gallery.

Throughout January we will serve hot cocoa in the museum lobby after each Art Break program to celebrate winter and to encourage ongoing conversation.

Art Break programs are grounded in the practice of slow looking, an educational approach that asks people to give patient, immersive attention to a work of art as a way to make connections and create meaning for yourself. These looking experiences will be facilitated by museum staff, interns, docents, and special guests.
