Numerous scientific studies have shown that we are drawn to images of the human face from the very start of our lives. So it’s no surprise that portraits play a very special role in the world of art and that many of its most beloved images fall into this category.
Local museum guide Rodney Paul will be joined by Charlie Goldberg for a Portrait Face Off. Charlie, who recently gave a class on Portraiture, will show some of his favorite images. After Charlie shows an artwork, Rodney will respond with a portrait that he has selected, and they will discuss the relationship between the two. Charlie and Rodney won’t know beforehand which images the other will be showing. Audience members will be invited to share their thoughts, and we’ll all use polling to determine which of these images we’d want hanging in our homes.
