Young detectives uncover clues, searching for varying symbolic attributes that reveal the meaning behind art while viewing the Paul Robeson Galleries’ exhibitions. They will explore iconographic emblems, social and cultural histories within themes and issues of self-representation/ reflection. They will then be challenged to use a set of “art clues” to reveal the meaning behind an individually selected work in the gallery.  Looking Lens participants apply what they have learned by creating artworks inspired by the exhibitions.
