Empathy is the ability to step outside one’s own perspective to identify with the experiences of others. How can art support us in developing this skill? Clyfford Still left his art open to interpretation and believed that his audience’s ideas of the work revealed much about the inner-workings of each unique viewer. Art can prompt us to tell stories, to make connections, and to discover new perspectives. Join us on this special, virtual tour as we use Still’s art to explore the experiences and interpretations of others and together build the skill of empathy streaming live from the Museum galleries.

Register in advance to join us online or over the phone at 5:30 p.m. MDT on August 6, 2020. Register for the Zoom meeting here. Live captioning will be provided. If you do not have access to Zoom, please join us for a livestream of the tour on the Museum’s YouTube channel.
