Find your way to the Museum for Art Shots: Navigation + (Dis)orientation. Meet guide Victoria Charette at the Benefit Street entrance at 7 pm to embark on a half-hour exploration of works of art and design that once functioned or have been incorporated into the Museum’s collection as navigational or (dis)orienting devices—blurring the line between the aesthetic and the functional.
