*Noon to 12:30: meet & greet and have a coffee
*12:30-1:00: lecture on Caravaggio & Baroque
*1:00pm: We'll head into the Caravaggio exhibit
I taught Baroque Art at CSULA and I am a huge fan of Caravaggio. Did you know, there are EIGHT Caravaggio paintings in the show? My lecture will also cover his placement in the emergence of Baroque art and his impact on what was, the 1st International art movement.
Join us if you love art history, or don't know anything about it but want to just learn...it's a great group to get to know!
See you all on the 5th and happy Holidays,
Following the Caravaggio we'll check out the Stanley Kubrick show (included) and then end with a drink at the STARK BAR.
Glad to have found some of my Meetup Crew, that's AWESOME- can't wait to see everyone!
