> DESCRIPTION

Consider the letter. At its most basic, it consists of one or more straight or curved lines, sometimes touching or forming geometric shapes. With these simple lines, humans build complex codes, communicate with each other, and grapple with the mysteries of the universe. The artists in Mark My Word use letters, challenging us to see them for what they really are, objects to be played with, read literally or not, or combined to enhance a story. In the Koret Family Gallery, we invite you to engage in your own word play.

At the San Jose Museum of Art, we believe learning is a lifelong pursuit. The Museum serves as a dynamic resource for all those who are curious: school children and their educators, multigenerational families, creative adults, university students and faculty, and community groups. Annually, the education department serves 47,000 individuals. The Koret Family Gallery is inspired by Let’s Look at Art, a free classroom outreach program where volunteers lead K-12 children in engaging and interactive discussions about art.
