ArtScapades: Masters of the Italian Renaissance
The New Canaan Library, through a sponsorship from the Friends of the New Canaan Library, announces the return of the ArtScapades lecture program beginning on Monday, October 15. This five-part series will cover “The Old Masters: From Renaissance to Rococo,” beginning with “Masters of the Italian Renaissance.” All lectures in the series will take place at 7 p.m. in the Adrian Lamb Room.
“Masters of the Italian Renaissance” will explore the styles of the great Italian artists: Botticelli, da Vinci, Michelangelo, Titian, and Raphael, who worked in the 15th and 16th centuries, and laid the foundation for the development of Western art.
Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman of ArtScapades will moderate the series. They began teaching art appreciation in 1998 in the New Canaan public school system. In 2009, they began sharing their knowledge with adults who wanted to learn the basics of art to make museum trips more enjoyable. The New Canaan Library is welcoming them back for a fourth time.
