FIA book discussions focus on works of fiction and non-fiction related to art, art museums, or FIA collections. The first meeting for each book sets the stage by exploring artists and artwork related to the selected book. Two weeks later, the book is discussed. These free programs are offered on Wednesdays at 1:30p in Isabel Hall.

Cat is Art Spelled Wrong

By Caroline Casey

Part 1: Art History Presentation

May 11 • 1:30p

Part 2: Book Discussion

May 25 • 1:30p

Isabel Hall 

Fifteen writers, all addressing not just our fascination with cat videos, but also how we decide what is good or bad art, or art at all; how taste develops, how that can change, and why we love or hate something. It's about people and technology and just what it is about cats that makes them the internet's cutest despots.

Books are available in the Museum Shop.
