Description: Visiting Professor of Art History at Holy Cross, museum educator, and scholar Annie Storr leads a series of virtual workshops, based on Holy Cross and other Massachusetts-based collections. The workshops will introduce Exercises for the Quiet Eye (EQE), a program that Storr developed to encourage patient reflection and an attempt to avoid the rush to understand, or determine a set interpretation for what we see. Through a series of exercises, specifically formatted for virtual participation, participants will find new ways of experiencing art.

The first session will be an introduction to EQE, and will help participants learn more about how we look at art. The goal will be to slow down, override classic art historical analysis/cognitive approaches, and explore the unresolved ambiguities in order to get more out of holistic art experiences.

Registration via ZOOM, approximately 1 hour long, limit 20 participants
