What makes a work of art valuable, and who decides? Join Met experts on Chancellor’s Conference Day to consider how value has been assigned to art across time and place and discuss how value can change in different contexts. Take part in multiple sessions to learn and evaluate a range of criteria for value: an artwork’s craftsmanship or the preciousness of its materials, its narrative function or role in expressing identity, its relationship to important rituals, and more. Through writing, art making, music, and group discussion, teachers will develop engaging and accessible classroom strategies to allow students to express ideas about what holds value to them.

Fee: $25. Please note: Advance registration is required. Registration closes on Friday, June 3, 2022, 11:59 pm (ET), or when registration is full.

For health and safety reasons, lunch is not provided. Participants may purchase food through one of the Museum’s dining options or nearby.
