Spend your Saturday at MoMA and learn more about the brain’s processes of visual compositions. This unique approach to viewing the museums collection will engage parts of your brain that most people otherwise do not think about. Museum educator, Lauren Kaplan, will utilize the museums vast collection to lead the group through various viewing exercises to exemplify the multitude of perceptual possibilities of viewing art. This Gallery Session will provide you with the opportunity to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of art and the brain's ability to process visual information.
