Date: 
Wednesday, October 30, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Lexington-based writer Randi Ewing leads three independent but connected workshops that use current Museum exhibitions as writing prompts.

Art is not always what it seems, and narrators cannot always be trusted. What first looks like one thing can be revealed to be another. Using the various forgeries, restrikes and misattributions in the Mistaken Identities exhibition, Randi Ewing leads participants in an exploration of various narrators.

Date: 
Wednesday, October 23, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Lexington-based writer Randi Ewing leads three independent but connected workshops that use current Museum exhibitions as writing prompts.
