Art Break: The Dance House: Nocturne by James McNeill Whistler

Thursday, October 12, 2023,

Colby College Museum of Art

Each Thursday, join us to spend time with a work of art on view in the Colby Museum’s gallery spaces. This week, Elisa Germán, Lunder Curator of Works on Paper and Whistler Studies, will facilitate a conversation focusing on The Dance House: Nocturne by James McNeill Whistler, located in the Davis Gallery.

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.
