Teacher Events and Workshops

Teacher Workshop: Intersecting Threads of Identity in Art

Thursday, Mar. 10, 2022
4 – 7 PM
Pay what you can


On site at the museum

How do gender roles, sexuality, and socioeconomic status depicted in art affect how we perceive artworks or artists? How do viewers’ own gender, sexuality, and status shape their interpretation of art? This workshop will explore two exhibitions, Weaving Stories and Seeing Gender, that grapple with these questions. Museum curators and educators will share classroom activities that use art to explore the theme of intersectionality.  

At the conclusion of our workshop, you are invited to a related performance by the San Francisco Girls Chorus.
