Making of Her Image Art Tour at the Museum of Fine Arts
An inspiring and empowering private tour that explores the diversity and roles of women currently in art.
Join us for a Making of Her Image Tour through the Museum of Fine Arts in celebration of our expansion to Boston. This “you go, girl!” art-inspired experience invites you to explore diverse imagery of women in art and consider, through conversation, the contemporary questions and issues that are raised in the process.
We’ll delve into several themes essential to women achieving their best: networking, telling your story, inspiration, failure, success, risk-taking, collaboration. In addition, we will explore the best ways for women to approach this balancing act. Our conversation will focus on questions such as: What influences one’s self-image? What makes women feel empowered? Do external factors play a role, and if so, what are they? What diverse ideas or standards are taken into consideration when portraying one’s persona? How has the ever-changing ideal of the female been understood through time?
Along the way you’ll delve into the images of women across cultures and time, from depictions of powerful women to the emotional reflection of self-image in art. Key art objects from the MFA will inform our discussion, including: American painter Edmund Tarbell’s New England Interior from 1906 and the current exhibition “What’s a Body,” featuring five modern art sculptures.
This exploration aims to connect with and reflect modern society’s diverse ideals, and will lead to some delightfully unexpected revelations. This thought-provoking experience will be led by an ART SMART art historian familiar with approaches to gender and identity across history. Come be inspired and empowered!
