David Hockney: 15 Canvas Study of the Grand Canyon
David Hockney’s 15 Canvas Study of the Grand Canyon is currently showing at the Memorial Art Gallery (Rochester, NY). Visitors of all ages are engaging with the work, from second graders in the Rochester City School District to those participating in Meet Me at the MAG – an innovative tour designed for people with Alzheimer’s or dementia, and their caregivers.
University of Rochester students are also engaging with the work, especially those enrolled in a 21st Century Art Museum course. The students are reinterpreting the gallery spaces with this painting in mind, and in doing so, inspiring the museum staff to think differently about their work.
