This morning @mhcartmuseum received a welcome visit from Kerstin Nordstrom’s Foundations of Physics class, who were investigating the role of mirrors, lenses, and optics within works of art & material culture. We always love when our #encyclopediccollection is able to broaden students’ perspectives on what they are learning in class! #teachingmuseum #objectbasedlearning Sightlines Tours kick off this Saturday, September 22 at 1:30 PM!
