Virtual Field Trip: Cleveland Museum of Art

March 2, 2017 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
JCPL at Meeting Room 5/6

JCPL’s virtual field trips allow you to visit far off places, see artistic masterpieces, experience live performances, go behind the scenes and get up close and personal all without leaving Jessamine County.  Using High Definition videoconferencing technology, participants are able to interact live with presenters at hundreds of content providers around the world.  Virtual field trips provide the opportunity for patrons to experience the history and appreciation of visual and performing arts, explore the sciences, learn about history and more.

In March we wil explore the architecture and galleries of the renowned Cleveland Museum of Art. This casual look at the collection includes recent installations of art and enduring favorites such as works in the Armor Court. Participants will “travel” through the museum enjoying special focus on highlighted pieces such as the medieval table fountain and Queen Isabella’s book of hours, a compilation of lavishly illustrated manuscripts. Opportunities abound to ask questions and learn more about the institution whose mission is helping “the broadest possible audience understand and engage with the world’s great art.

Every child, birth – 5th grade, who attends a virtual field trip will recive a FREE gift book of their choice.
