Tuesday Art Talks
Let’s Talk About Art and Its History
Dates: January 17-March 28, 2017
Time: Tuesdays from 1:00 to 2:30 pm
Ages: 16 and up
A learning experience rather than a course, talks will be based upon the history of art of the Western World, comparing and contrasting works of art over time. Modern Art finds its beginning in the Renaissance and a rebirth of the arts and sciences of Classical civilization. Yet it was the 18th century Enlightenment that served as an impetus for modernity that propelled the connections, transitions, and changes that continue to affect the art of today. This look at artists responding to the socio-political, economic, and artistic environment of their times will enable a recall of history itself, an additional extension beyond the world of art. Based upon an art history course, there are no tests and no grades, meant to encourage exchanges in ideas for those who want to learn more in order to remember what might have been forgotten.
