Zoom In: Free Time – What’s Your Pleasure?

Virtual event, Tuesday, May 10, 7–8 p.m. EST

How do we wind down from the business of our lives? Fishing, picnics, mountain excursions, sewing, and hiking—each activity (among many others) has us looking forward to the weekend. But, what were the conditions that led workers to demand the creation of the “weekend?” How have people filled their hours with joy, relaxation, hobbies, and togetherness throughout history? Walkthrough time and media to discover how artists have captured relaxation and recreation through the years.
