New Members Book Club: Why a Painting Is Like a Pizza

Thursday, February 27 • 1 p.m. or 7 p.m.

Have you ever questioned why something ended up in your favorite gallery or museum? Art historian Nancy Heller addresses these questions and more in her informative, jargon-free book. Why a Painting Is Like a Pizza discusses issues inherent to the worlds of modern and contemporary art with astute charm and ease. Using common sense examples and making unexpected connections, this book helps even the most skeptical viewers feel comfortable around contemporary art.

MOCA will offer a guided book club discussion and interactive, hour-long tour at either 1 p.m. or 7 p.m. Please join us at Café Nola for a meal before or after the discussion time of your choosing. Reservations are encouraged.

Free for Members*

  • Price of the Café Nola dining experience is not included.
