Visual Literacy Gallery
Ron Kroutel, Striding Man, Oil on Canvas, 2011   (detail)


The objects in this gallery have been specifically selected by Curator of Education Sally Delgado and Educational Programs Coordinator Lisa Quinn to stimulate conversations on visual literacy and how we create meaning, both individually and collectively, from visual images. Visitors are invited to slow down, look closely and consider how they process and interpret visual information. This slowing down of visual processing – be it alone or in conversation with others – has the potential to increase our understanding of cultural difference, bring awareness of bias, and encourage empathy. Facilitated Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS) sessions for classes can be scheduled through KMA’s education department ( delgado@ohio.edu or quinnl@ohio.edu ).
