While some say art is an acquired taste, this new series aims to show how appetizing art can be, especially when viewed from a non-art perspective. Led by UNCG faculty, Art for Lunch is a series of gallery talks that closely explores works of art within the context of history, politics, sociology, and science.


February 8 • Benjamin Filene, Associate Professor, Director of Public History, UNCG talks about Nan Goldin's 1996 photograph, Bruce's Mirror, Portland, ME, in the exhibition To What Purpose? Photography as Art and Document.

March 21 • Lisa Tolbert, Associate Professor, History, UNCG talks about images of Yosemite Valley by Carleton Watkins and Eadweard Muybridge in the exhibition To What Purpose? Photography as Art and Document.
