The Art of Looking
The Art of Looking includes ceramics, collages, baskets, textiles, drawings, masks, paintings, photographs, and prints from the Museum’s holdings. With an emphasis on pattern and texture, this eclectic assortment of works, ranging in age from the 13th century to 2015, invites viewers to consider each object and the formal relationships between the works. To encourage close looking visitors are invited to sketch with the provided paper and pencils, or to simply sit a moment and contemplate the works on view. This event will take place at UCSB's Art Museum.
