My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art.
This week, SAM offers a tour of Michelangelo Public and Private: Drawings for the Sistine Chapel and Other Treasures from the Casa Buonarroti with Elizabeth Brown, chief curator and director of exhibitions and collections for the Henry Art Gallery at the University of Washington. Before her position at the Henry, she served as chief curator at the University Art Museum, University of California at Santa Barbara; as curator of modern art at the Allen Memorial Art Museum in Oberlin, Ohio; and as a post-doctoral fellow at the National Gallery of Art.
Free with museum admission. Tours meet at the entrance to Michelangelo Public and Private: Drawings for the Sistine Chapel and Other Treasures from the Casa Buonarroti.
