Explore art through a scientific lens in a new STEAM tour (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). Examine electromagnetic radiation and the properties of light in a new exhibition, Astonishing Brilliance, on view through March 15, 2020. Students will peer into pinhole cameras and consider the visible spectrum of light, iridescence, and how the Museum’s architect, Philip Johnson, integrated light into the design of the building.

With the exhibition Mysterious, Marvelous, Malevolent: The Art of Elihu Vedder, on view through December 29, 2019, we present a new spin on our popular Myths and Mysteries at the Museum tour. Students will examine traditional and contemporary works of art that explore enduring ancient Greek and Roman stories, such as creation myths and the hero’s journey.
