Join Donna Houtteman in the Root Family Auditorium to discover how the portrayal of women in art can enlighten us to cultural history. Follow how the chronological portrayal of the female form, from the Stone Age through contemporary, reflects the time and place in which it was made. Enjoy learning about some of history’s greatest works of art. Ponder the fact that most art was created by men (reflecting HIS-story rather than HER-story!)
After the lecture, there will be a social hour with Donna. Food and beverage is included.
Advanced registration is required.
