‘Continuum’ Conversation – Goya in ‘Continuum’ (Exhibition Tour and Lecture)

Art historian and Goya expert, Dr. Karissa Bushman will take a deeper look at the Continuum exhibition by exploring the significance of Goya’s Disasters of War series and its connection to Erdreich’s series.

Disasters of War changed the course of art history as one of the earliest forms of criticism against the horrors of war. Rather than focus on glorifying generals and promoting nationalism, Goya documented the Spanish War of Independence in his prints, drawings and paintings. His imagery is brutal and at times hard to view. His approach to documenting war has been influential to many notable artists which we will discuss. Dr. Bushman will also examine how Erdreich’s Continuum offers a reinterpretation of Goya’s Disasters of War through a twenty-first century lens. An exhibition tour will precede this lecture.

All Continuum Conversation events will be held in WMA’s Main Gallery.

Youth Art Education Policy

Outside of tours, family days, and open house events, individuals who are not enrolled in a class are not allowed in WMA classrooms except by written permission of the Executive Director. Parents may not join children in the classroom during instruction times in order to ensure an atmosphere conductive to creativity. It is important to limit the number of adults to keep the focus on the kids, their learning, and to accommodate limited seating in the studio. Parents are welcome to stay in the museum during class but must remain outside of the classroom during instruction time.

Museum educators are experienced in creating positive learning environments for all ages and are required to go through a background check to ensure the safety of our students. Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit the studio at the end of class to see what their child has created. All docents and volunteers working with children are also required to go through background checks.

Thank you for understanding our policy and priority on the safety and well-being of participating students.

Throughout the year, WMA will host “Meet the Educator” days where parents and their children can come to the classroom to meet the instructor before beginning classes and camps. 2019’s schedule is as follows: January 30 from 4pm-6pm, May 29 from 4pm-6pm, and August 28 from 4pm-6pm.
