May 12

6:00pm–7:30pm

Sculpting the Sacred Body in Renaissance Florence

The human body moves with expressive purpose in Italian Renaissance sculpture. In this course, Dr. Olivia Powell, Associate Museum Educator at The Frick Collection, we lead students as they encounter the eloquent bodies sculpted for Florence Cathedral and discuss the artists' ability to use actions and gestures to communicate the sacred rhetoric of prophets and saints. We will also take the highly kinetic dimension of these sculptures as an invitation to explore the impact of their physical presence and ask ourselves if phenomenology provides a point of access for understanding objects separated from us by time and space.

Registration is required. Space is limited to 20 participants. To register, please email education@mobia.org with the name of the course in the subject line.
