NEW program “ArtTalk at the MAC” #theVirtualMAC

May 19, 2020

ArtTalk at the MAC
Monthly Meetings, currently via Zoom
First meeting: Thursday, May 28 at 7:00pm (virtual)

Would you like to join an informal group chat about art? Or perhaps you would like a better understanding of works that you "just don't get"? Join the MAC for a virtual discussion about art (no knowledge of art or art history required!).

The Marion Art Center's new monthly program, ArtTalk at the MAC, is similar to a book club. Participants will be sent two artworks in the form of images, videos, or links. The meeting host will choose two artworks: one that she or he is fond of, and a second that she or he doesn't particularly like or understand. The host will also provide short artist bios and/or descriptions of selected works to the group, ahead of the scheduled meeting.

Art could be from a private collection, a publication, seen online, or a famous work found in a museum. Art may also include poetry, dance, video, performance, or installation art. The group will meet at a scheduled date and time (currently via Zoom). Participants are invited to make their own cocktails or refreshments! ArtTalk at the MAC may continue on site at the Marion Art Center when we are able to safely meet as a group.

The first session of #ArtTalkattheMAC is scheduled on Thursday, May 28 at 7:00pm. This will be an organizational meeting to discuss the schedule and arrange hosts, with a brief art discussion. Jennifer Wolfe Webb, MAC board President, will host the initial meeting. To register, email with "ArtTalk at the MAC" in the subject line. Be sure to include your name, preferred email address (if different than one you are using), and phone number. We hope to see you there!
