Susan Baley’s talk will focus on art appreciation from the perspective of one of her favorite books: Why a Painting is like a Pizza: A Guide to Understanding and Enjoying Modern Art by Nancy Heller.  Both the author and Susan are cooks who often see the parallels between cooking and art making!  The talk will consider how we can refine the analytical tools we already possess to understand and enjoy even the most unfamiliar paintings and sculptures.
