The Place Of the Muses: A Brief History of the Museum

March 18 @ 12:15 pm1:00 pm
| Cost: $4 | Cost for Members: $2

Presentations will take place via the video conferencing app ZOOM. Please register in advance in order to access the program.

It would seem as though museums have always been around, but in truth, they’re a fairly recent phenomenon. Beginning with the early proto-museums of the Renaissance, this compact yet comprehensive discussion traces the development of public art institutions, from the “wonder rooms” of the Age of Exploration up through modern times—including the discovery of ancient world’s only known museum in 6th-century BC Mesopotamia.

Presented by Gene Wisniewski, educator and author of The Art of Looking at Art
