High Schoolers Ask Good Questions
Last week a group of high school students from Casey county toured the museum. In these pictures, our docent Stephanie Hillebrand is touring them in the exhibition Art and the Animal and docent Larry Lynch is discussing the horse sculpture by Deborah Butterfield in the permanent collection. (Artworks that we own, and keep for posterity, and try to keep on view as much as possible.)
Larry told me he enjoyed this group because they were art students, and asked good questions!
Our permanent collection has over 4500 artworks, so it is not possible to show them all at once. We try to keep the most significant on view, and rotate more fragile works such as watercolors or photographs.
