“The Art of Perception” with Amy Herman
Amy Herman is an attorney and museum professional who brings a unique perspective to the arts. Amy began her career in the museum field at The Frick Collection on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Not long after working as the Frick’s Head of Education, Amy developed an art analysis program that has been adapted to train medical and law enforcement officials to enhance their observation, perception and communication skills by learning to analyze works of art. Amy’s “students” include the CIA, FBI, Secret Service, Department of Justice, New York City Police Department, as well as major museums, hospitals, medical schools and universities across the country. You’ll never look at art the same way again!
