Art Break: Testing the Shaft by Joseph Henry Sharp

Thursday, March 14, 2024,

Colby College Museum of Art

Each Thursday, join us to spend time with a work of art on view in the Colby College Museum of Art’s galleries. This week, Lisa F. Wheeler, education manager at Waterville Creates, will facilitate a conversation focusing on Testing the Shaft by Joseph Henry Sharp.

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.
