The NYC Chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America is excited to present Museum Educator, Lauren Ebin, who will lead an online tour of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tour will feature works by deaf artists, Francisco de Goya and David Hockney and will include Emanuel Leutze’s Washington Crossing the Delaware and Jackson Pollock’s Autumn Rhythm, among others. We will also explore both grand and hidden spaces in the museum, including the Temple of Dendur and the Astor Chinese Garden Court.
Lauren Ebin is an art historian and archaeologist, who has been a museum educator working with audiences of all ages at The Met since 1998, and with the Access Group at the museum since 2017. Prior to working at The Met, Lauren was a Research Associate and Mellon Fellow in the Department of the Arts of Africa, America, Oceania, and the Pacific at the Brooklyn Museum, and taught graduate-level classes at Pratt Institute. She has curated highly focused special exhibits in art and anthropology museums in both the United States and Argentina, and has written for domestic and international publications. Lauren holds degrees from Brown and Columbia Universities.
