The popular and free Art in Focus lecture series will continue and be held in-person on Monday, January 23, at South Shore Arts. Beginning at 10am, guests will enjoy a guided walkthrough of the current exhibit in the Bachman gallery called “Sense and Sensibility,” hosted by the exhibit curators Tom Torluemke and Linda Dorman.
A core objective when developing any of our programs or classes at South Shore Arts is that we meet our audiences desire of experiencing the cultural similarities that unite us by providing quality content that is accessible to all. Art in Focus is an exploration of the arts through film, lecture, and thoughtful dialogue. Art in Focus is for adult learners of all ages who are interested in the arts and its impact on the world.
Founded in 1996 by Rita M. Ray, South Shore Arts continues this series annually with a variety of topics and guest speakers. Several lectures will coincide with upcoming Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra concerts and South Shore Arts exhibits. An important aspect of the program is the thoughtful dialogue between the program facilitator, the guest speakers, and the attendees to broaden views of the arts and individuals in our world. Our goal parallels that of the U.S. Department of Education, “Learning Never Ends.” Art in Focus is open to the public and, thanks to generous support from Community Healthcare System, it is always free.
