New England is home to a variety of spectacular art museums. We’ll explore the history and collections of large and small art museums in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Rhode Island, including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Wadsworth Atheneum in Connecticut, the Portland Museum of Art in Maine, the Currier Museum of Art in New Hampshire, the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, and the RISD  Museum in Rhode Island. We’ll also share in the delights of smaller art museums such as the Hill-Stead Museum, the home of a wealthy collector of Manets, Monets, and Whistlers. This course will enhance your opportunity for enriching art adventures in New England.
Instructor: Martha Chiarchiaro has brought art history to life for more than 30 years. She received her master’s degree in the history of art from Williams College and has taught a variety of classes at the Worcester Art Museum, Worcester State University, WISE, and other cultural organizations.
