Engaging with Art: Great 'Scapes Around the World
UMMA docents will guide visitors through the galleries on tours as diverse as their interests and areas of expertise. Each docent plans a theme and includes a variety of styles and media to illuminate his or her ideas. Themes may be repeated but each docent's approach and choice of objects is unique. The subject for today is Great 'Scapes Around the World.
Landscapes, riverscapes, townscapes, and skyscapes have long provided mental refuge from the mundane world, for artists and viewers alike. Some artists express a yearning for escape, such as the Chinese literati painter placing his imaginary poet in a remote mountain pavilion. Other artists might capture on canvas the fearsome power of a looming storm, or document in photography the evidence of human activity on our changing planet. This docent-led tour encompasses a variety of eras, traditions, and media with information and conversation.
