Inquiry welcomes the new Director of the WORCESTER ART MUSEUM MATTIAS WASCHEK. In this wide-ranging and fascinating discussion, Mattias Waschek talks about what art museums need to do to stay vital in the twenty-first century, why we need to redefine the Worcester Art Museum’s  “story”, and how art museums can connect more successfully with modern diverse audiences. This is a new and exciting look ahead at what is in store for the Worcester Art Museum, so don’t miss this show!

Inquiry welcomes photographer and teacher RON ROSENSTOCK. Ron’s stunningly beautiful photography celebrates the quiet majesty and natural spirituality of places as diverse as Ireland, Morocco, Italy and Bhutan. Whether studying the shadows and patterns of desert dunes or the mystery of the Taj Mahal in mist, Ron Rosenstock’s photography captures an unique and ineffable moment of time and place that is both personal and otherworldly. Ron is also an indefatigable teacher, who brings his classes on trips all over the world to learn how to see like a photographer. Tune in tonight and listen to Ron talk about his beginnings as a photographer, how the digital revolution changed the way he worked and how he looks at a landscape. A show of Ron Rosenstock’s work HYMN TO THE EARTH is currently on view at the Worcester Art Museum until March 18.
