Up Close Tour: A Sartorial Starr

Up Close Tours encourage visitors to look closely at materials from the Athenæum’s rich collections and consider them within a particular context.

Join Boston Athenæum's Polly Thayer Starr Fellow in American Art and Culture Theo Tyson as she leads a discussion unpacking the subtle, yet salient, feminism and sartorial commentary of Polly Thayer Starr's painterly portraits.
