High Museum of Art Online

Event Description

On the last Tuesday of every month, our virtual Teacher’s Lounge is the place to be! Join museum educators online as they do a deep dive into an exhibition, work of art, artist, or theme. These forty-five-minute programs will be interactive and informative—and a chance for teachers to relax while viewing art from their home, car, or classroom!

Join us this month as we talk about the multidimensional work of Kara Walker. Walker works across media to address racial prejudice and inequality embedded in contemporary society. Originally from Stockton, California, she moved to Stone Mountain, Georgia, when her father, artist Larry Walker, accepted a teaching position at Georgia State University. We will talk about her influences, her works in the High’s collection, and how her work can connect back to the classroom.

This event is free, but preregistration is required. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event. Teacher’s Lounge will not take place in December or May.
