How do artworks talk to us… and to one another? And how can we learn to talk back? Join Northwestern undergraduates in The Block Museum Student Docent Program to consider these questions in a unique lunchtime series. Through half-hour discussion-based presentations, Northwestern docents from interdisciplinary fields of study will consider two works from the museum collection that have something to say to one another (and to us.) This season, the team will share artworks in our current exhibition For One and All: Prints from The Block’s Collection, and our upcoming Fall 2021 exhibition, Who Says, Who Shows, What Counts.  

On this date, Rory Kahiya Tsapayi (’21, Art History and Journalism), will be discussing Untitled #49 (2002) by Laura Letinsky (Canadian, born 1962) and Mother and Child, from the portfolio CONSPIRACY: The artist as witness (1971) by Romare Bearden (American, 1911–1988).


Online, free and open to all.


This series is presented in conjunction with The Block’s 40th anniversary, Thinking about History with The Block Collection a year-long celebration of the Museum’s collection as a tool to help us reflect upon, question, and reimagine the past.
