In honor of the opening of Thinking Small: Dutch Art to Scale, join three distinguished collectors of 17th-century Dutch art, George Abrams and Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo, for a conversation about the uniquely personal experience of collecting and engaging directly with works of art. Selections from the Abrams and the Van Otterloo holdings are featured in Thinking Small, a student-curated exhibition that highlights an intriguing array of objects from the 17th-century Netherlands that were designed to elicit slow, intimate, and contemplative responses on the part of their audiences. Moderated by Marisa Bass, Professor in the History of Art. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.
