Artists are visual storytellers, creating works that are rich sources of layered meaning. Art museums are repositories of great examples of visual communication from across time and place and provide excellent opportunities to explore visual language. Speaking Visual: Learning the Language of Art uses works from the Toledo Museum of Art collection to teach visitors methods and approaches for interpreting works of art. Free admission.
