How to Look at Art
with Keelin MacCarthy

Add to your calendar
Date: March 20, 5:30 pm-6:30pm
Continues Until:
Location: Crested Butte Library
Details: Join us at the Crested Butte Library on Monday, March 20 at 5:30 pm for a presentation by the library’s own, Keelin MacCarthy. “How to Look at Art: Making Sense of the Stuff We Make” will walk attendees through some famous art pieces like The Arnolfini Portrait and some in the library’s collection. Does art intimidate you? Do you ever feel like you just don’t get it? Does the mere mention of Rothko make you shiver? Join us for a relaxed evening of making sense of the stuff humans make, and then make some stuff of your own! No judgment, just snacks and chats. About Keelin: Keelin MacCarthy is an educator specializing in art and science communication, youth programming, and cat memes. Before moving to Gunnison, she worked in museums, creating experiences to inspire audiences of all ages at institutions such as the Denver Art Museum and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. MacCarthy taught exhibition design at Western Colorado University, and she is currently the Coordinator of Youth & Family Services at Gunnison County Libraries.
