Art Viewing Adventures: Stories Photographs Tell (Virtual)
January 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Often, famous photographs we know and love have interesting stories behind them. Museum guide Rodney Paul will be joined by Robert Tat, who will show a few examples and tell us about how these pictures came to be made. This is a session sure to enhance your enjoyment of these favorite images.
Rob last joined Rodney in October to discuss his lifelong love of photography. In 1996, he established the Robert Tat Gallery in San Francisco, which deals exclusively in photographic art Over a 10-year period, the Gallery mounted 43 exhibitions before Rob became a private dealer. He is also a local museum guide and regularly conducts tours of photography as well as other art exhibitions.

Rodney has been leading Zoom-based art tours long before shelter-in-place, as a way to share art from a distance. In his tours, he provides information to help viewers mine the artworks for meaning based on their own experiences and perceptions.
