    Wonderful and highly informative, as always.

    Just as my appreciation for contemporary art skyrocketed after one of Sharon's meetups at MOCA, so did my appreciation for Caravaggio and baroque art today.

    When I tried again, I was able to purchase a ticket for Caravaggio without being given the option for Kubrick. Now I doubt that I have tix for Kubrick. I guess I'll have to sort it out when I pick up my tickets at will call. I still would like to have a specific time for Kubrick so that I may attend with the group.

    Sharon, After requesting a 1:00 ticket for Caravaggio I also encountered the screen requesting a specific time for Kubrick. What specific time should I request for Kubrick so that I may attend with the group?

  • Sharon Fitzgerald, M.

    Sharon, this is great event thanks for organizing. I've bought my ticket but had a question. My friend got a different ticket screen than me, apparently she also has to pick a Kubrick time? I bought on my cell and only got a 1pm Carav time option to pick?

    January 2, 2013

    • Sharon Fitzgerald, M.

      I don't remember them asking me for a Kubrick time? However, you can go in after you set time for Caravaggio no problem. Glad you can join us!

    Hi. My name is Eddie Feinstein. How often do you meet up?

    December 20, 2012

    • Sharon Fitzgerald, M.

      Hi Eddie, for 2013 I plan to meet monthly. Currently I have Jan 5th and Feb 9th - two kind of amazing shows with artists, Caravaggio and Giotto, that are difficult to track down even if in Europe. I heard Giotto's Arena Chapel, with much of his frescos, is not closed to the public. Hope you can make it, and see you out. Sharon

      December 20, 2012

    • Robyn C.

      So looking forward to this and Giotto and meeting all of you!
