March 21 & 28
Film: “National Gallery”
The Harwood Museum of Art is proud to present the film “National Gallery.” The film takes the audience behind the scenes of a London institution, on a journey to the heart of a museum inhabited by masterpieces of Western art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. National Gallery is the portrait of a place, its way of working and relations with the world, its staff and public, and its paintings. In a perpetual and dizzying game of mirrors, film watches painting watches film. The film starts at 1pm and ends at 4:30pm. There will be a 20-minute intermission, and tea will be served. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $8 for Museum Alliance members. For more information, visit harwoodmuseum.org.
Location: Arthur Bell Auditorium, Harwood Museum of Art, 238 Ledoux St.
