Beautiful Death

Event Type Sheppy Dog Fund Lecture
Date calendar  Wednesday, July 20, 2022
Time clock  6:00pm - 7:30pm (1h 30m)
Location FIA Theatre

Looking closely at works in the FIA's European and American collections, this talk will explore how death is depicted, contemplated, and memorialized in art. From sacred to secular works--objects made for an altar to personal portraits of loss--artists have interpreted the inevitability of death in ways beautiful, mysterious, and sublime.
