Friends of the Alameda Free Library offers free art docent lectures. These popular events feature knowledgeable speakers, usually docents affiliated with the Bay Area museums that are holding current exhibits. They show slide presentations of the art and provide history and background about the exhibit. These events are usually held on Monday nights, starting at 6:30 p.m., at the Main Library’s Stafford Room and are popular, so come early to get a seat.
The next art docent lecture will feature the art of Rene Magritte on Monday, Aug. 13.
Handouts from past events are listed on the right side of this page.
