Talk About Art is a six-minute documentary film that highlights the views of visitors to the National Gallery of Art. Among those who share their thoughts on art are people from all walks of life—including (printmaker Lou Stovall), students, a taxi driver, an architect, a security guard, and a hairdresser. These are not art historians, but art is a common bond for them, and clearly a force in their lives. For some, art is a way to connect to the past; for others, it is a way to see the world around them in a different way. Listening to their side of the museum experience may get you talking about art as well.
