Past examples of apocalyptic artwork and literature, with an eye towards our own era will be examined when the Johnson County Museum conducts its next virtual program in mid-January.
The one-hour program, called Virtual Program - Apocalypse Now?, is for ages 21 and older. Featuring panelists from the National Art Bridges Foundation and Johnson County Community College, this program will place special emphasis on the works of art created by the local community and featured in the Johnson County Arts & Heritage Center’s "Resilience, Reflection, Rebuilding: Artists Respond to COVID-19" exhibition, on display through Jan. 22.
The free virtual program - Apocalypse Now? will take place beginning at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 12, via Zoom. Preregistration is required. All registered participants will receive an email with a Zoom link and instructions on how to proceed. For more information or to register by phone, call 913-831-3359 or online at jcprd.com.
The virtual program ties into a temporary exhibit with 64 works of art now on display at the museum called "Resilience, Reflection, Rebuilding: Artists Respond to COVID-19." The museum is a department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
