Portrait-Themed Art Trivia Happy Hour


August 25, 2022 | 5:00 PM (Virtual)

Today, capturing someone’s likeness takes seconds. Pull out your phone, aim at your subject, press a button and voilà! But for most of human history, things were a little more complicated, costly, and time consuming…

This month, join us in celebrating the original “portrait mode” and our age-old obsession with appearances. As usual, the multiple choice questions will be fun for all trivia lovers (no art background needed) and answers will be anonymous.

So square your shoulders, tilt your chin, hold that pose…then join us on Zoom for another fun-filled round!
