We have all heard the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. In this special exhibition, we take a closer look at the important association between visual art and storytelling.
Some of the earliest evidence of human activity suggests that people told stories with pictures. Stories shape our knowledge of the world and function as the foundation of memory and learning. Not only are they the emotional glue that connects us with our humanness, they are a powerful medium for communicating ideas, documenting history, linking the past, present, and future, and sharing knowledge with others.
Don’t miss this uniquely insightful exhibition, offering a rare opportunity to slow down, look closely, think deeply, and find your own story.
