The Art of Vilhelm Hammershoi

Explore the paintings of Vilhelm Hammershoi, a Danish artist who produced some of the most lovely and haunting works to come out of the late 19th century and early 20th century. Discussion will include historic precedents for Hammershoi’s works by artists such as Vermeer, and we will analyze Hammershoi’s role in the Symbolist movement and how he relates to contemporaries like Edvard Munch. Ann Shifflet, Art History instructor at Columbus College of Art and Design is the presenter.

Family Books and Build

Children and caregivers join us for stories, building and fun! Each month we’ll read a couple of stories to start, then the building will begin with our LEGO and LEGO Duplo blocks. We provide books and blocks as inspiration, then your child gets hands-on building time. Please note, children will not be able to keep their creations. Registration is required and begins two weeks prior.
