Drinks with the Director: Why is THAT Famous?!?

Thursday, Jan 20, 2022

6:00pm – 7:00pm


Just in time for the new year, we’re bringing back one of our most popular, interactive virtual programs: Drinks with the Director: Why is THAT Famous?!?

We know you still have burning questions about some of the most notable — and most questionable — works of art made throughout art history! Grab some popcorn (and your favorite drink, of course) and join us on Facebook Live or via Zoom on January 20, 2022 at 6 pm with Dr. Alex Rich, Executive Director and Chief Curator, and his knowledgeable guests, Dr. Kristen Carter, Assistant Professor of Art History at Florida Southern College; Holly Scoggins, Professor of Art at Polk State College; and Andrew Coombs, Professor of Ceramics at Polk State College! The panel will offer their hot-takes on which works are truly worthy of their fame (and which aren’t), what each work means within the history of art, and why people may be so intrigued by them.

During the program, we also want to hear YOUR ideas and theories about what made today’s most recognizable works of art famous and why. Have an image of a famous work you love and want the panel to discuss? Add the image or title of the work to the comments during the live program either via Facebook Live or Zoom for the panel to discuss!
