Babies in Artland is designed for adult caregivers and their infant companions (12-months and younger). 

Join an educator and fellow parents for lively conversation about works of art on view, with baby coos and cries encouraged. We will spend time looking and discussing in a supportive environment. There will be time to share and ask questions about art and parenting. We recommend slings over strollers when possible, and a 1:1 adult to infant ratio, but we will work to accommodate parents of twins.

Landscape painting was first seen in the Minoan frescoes of Crete around 1500 B.C. and was generally used as decoration, adding views of the Mediterranean landscape to interiors where there were none. The “landscape” eventually became a common genre in western painting, understood as a window onto the world thanks to artist and theorist Leon Battista Alberti and his ideas about the picture plane known as ‘Alberti’s Window’. After the Industrial Revolution, however, modern art erupted with the landscape’s inversion: the interior. Notably, modern artists began depicting windows into other rooms instead of painting views of the outside world.
