In Your Eyes: Experiment like ESTAR(SER)

When we take a moment to slow down and look closely at a work of art, what stories might it tell us? What do we see that we may not have noticed at first? <i>THE THIRD, MEANING: ESTAR(SER) Installs the Frye Collection</i> (on view October 15, 2022–October 15, 2023) stages a diverse selection of works from the museum’s collection in a series of triads, or groupings of three, to create small conversations that are open to interpretation. Inspired by <i>THE THIRD, MEANING</i>, the Frye invites visitors of all ages to create their own triads using magnetic reproductions of select collection artworks in a dynamic interactive space. Join us in the museum’s Education Wing to arrange these magnets in ways that explore visual elements of art, tell a story, or respond to ESTAR(SER)’s triads. Visitors can display their creations in this collective “gallery,” photograph them, and share them on Instagram using #MyFryeTriad. <i>In Your Eyes: Experiment Like ESTAR(SER)</i> is organized by Michelle Cheng, former Director of Education and Community Partnerships; Caroline Byrd, former Manager of Tours and Public Programs; Yazmin Cojulun, Education Assistant; and Kelsey Donahue, Manager of School & Family Engagement. Generous support for this installation has been provided by the Frye Foundation and Frye Members.
