Artist Study

The Artist study rotation includes suggestions of artists from the pre-Renaissance period to contemporary art. We’ve tried to include art that is historically and thematically aligned with the year schedules in order to expand the art and architecture offerings. The  artist rotation does lean Western at the moment.

Three works are suggested for each artists, but please don’t feel like you are limited to those three works. They are as much suggestions as the artists are!
