Further Information

In 2020, in response to the pandemic's disruption of K-12 art education, the Loeb worked with local art teachers to assess students' needs for art supplies to use at home during remote learning. As a result, the museum donated materials for more than 800 students, and summer interns designed activity cards and short online videos demonstrating related art projects. Both featured works by Carmen Aldunate from the series No, esa no soy yo (No, that's not me). In one lesson focused on drawing, Aldunate's skillfully controlled pencil marks are compared to other pencil drawings in the collection including those by seminal Hudson River School artist Sanford Robinson Gifford.
