Art Bites

Get some food for thought with Art Bites! These lunchtime talks are unique explorations of the galleries inspired by your favorite books, television shows, and more, all in thirty minutes or less. Join us on the third Thursday of each month at the information desk in the Ames Family Atrium.

There and Back Again
Thursday, November 20, 12:30 p.m. and Friday, November 21, 6:00 p.m.
Venture out of your hobbit-hole for an adventure through the collections. We’ll visit dragons as fearsome as Smaug, hear tales of warriors like Beorn who transform into ferocious animals, and marvel at treasures worthy of the King under the Mountain!

Earth Kings and Fire Lords
Thursday, December 18, 12:30 p.m. and Friday, December 19, 6:00 p.m.
The cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender drew heavily on the history and culture of China, Japan, and India. Check out real-world equivalents of settings, scenes, and characters from the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom in this tour of the galleries.
