Sharing Art-Related Memories

In our final segment on enjoying and valuing, participants share some personal art-related memories.

The Continuing Victorian Narrative: Gentlemen

Museum exhibitions are a wonderful way to explore the context of the art and artifacts of an era. In 2015 the Museum & Gallery showcased a variety of Victorian paintings and objects in Charles Dickens: The Continuing Victorian Narrative. Over the next several segments M&G Director Erin Jones will provide a virtual “tour” of that exhibition’s vignettes. We’ll also highlight several of the era’s influential (and colorful!) personalities connected to these vignettes.
