About the Event
What do Interpol, the FBI, the IMF and The Coudert Institutehave in common? AMY HERMAN. Ms. Herman is an attorney and art historian who uses works of art to sharpen observation and perception skills as well as refine communication of vision, mission, and strategy. By showing individuals how to look closely at painting, sculpture, and photography, she helps them hone their visual intelligence to recognize the most pertinent and useful information. In light of the pandemic’s shift in our situational awareness, the program’s interactive exercises are designed to help meet the challenges of accessibility and plan for unforeseen circumstances. Visual literacy provides an innovative toolto sharpen participants’ sense of critical inquiry, understand biases that impede optimal decision making, and refresh lines of vision to encourage creative problem solvingand more substantive engagement. Fast moving, thought provoking, and fun. Prepare to have your eyes opened when you didn’t even know they were closed.
Amy E. Herman developed her Art of Perception seminar in 2000 to improve medical students’ observation and communication skills with their patients when she was the Head of Education at The Frick Collection in New York City. She subsequently adapted the program for a wide range of professionals and leads sessions internationally for the New York City Police Department, the FBI, the French National Police, the Department of Defense, Interpol, the State Department, Fortune 500 companies, first responders, and the military. The program has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The CBS Evening News, and Smithsonian Magazine, among others. Her TED talk, A Lesson on Looking, went live in December 2018. Ms. Herman holds an A.B., a J.D., and an M.A. in art history. Her book, Visual Intelligence, which was translated into nine languages, was published in May 2016 and was on both the New York Timesand Washington Postbest sellers’ lists.
Herman's brand new book, Fixed How to Perfect the Fine Art of Problem Solving (Harper Wave, 2021), outlines her step-by-step approach, providing a fresh set of tools to help us kickstart our critical thinking skills and enable us to find solutions to some of our most intractable problems. In its pages, she explains the artist’s use of the creative process and teaches us how to analyze paintings, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and contemporary art. By learning how to look at these works more astutely, we hone our powers of perception and discover deep-seated truths about ourselves that often prevent clear-thinking and optimal decision making. Once we recognize our biases, we can overcome them and see solutions we were previously blind to. Herman’s approach doesn’t take an art degree—only the willingness to open our eyes and our minds.
