Marion Art Center starts new discussion group

May 18, 2020

MARION —  The Marion Art Center’s new monthly program, ArtTalk at the MAC, is similar to a book club, with a chance to discuss art but no prior knowledge required. 

The first session of #ArtTalkattheMAC is scheduled on Thursday, May 28 at 7 p.m. It will be an organizational meeting to discuss the schedule and arrange hosts, with a brief art discussion. Jennifer Wolfe Webb, Marion Art Center board President, will host the initial meeting. To register, email with “ArtTalk at the MAC” in the subject line. Be sure to include a name and phone number.

After the first session, participants will be sent two different artworks by a host. The host will choose one piece of artwork that he or she is fond of and a second piece that he or she doesn’t particularly like or understand, but might interest others. The host will provide images or links, plus short artist biographies or descriptions of selected works. 

Works may include poetry, dance, video, performance, or installation art.

The group will meet at a scheduled date and time (currently via Zoom, though the group will continue on site when it is able to safely meet in-person). Participants are invited to make their own cocktails or refreshments
