Smart Museum of Art
Smart Museum: Part II - Drawing Workshop
This lunchtime series with the Poetry Foundation and Smart Museum of Art takes us into the wild world of human relationships in ancient Rome and Renaissance Europe that is both strange and oddly familiar. Together, we’ll investigate themes of trauma, transformation, and love during our current Pandemic epoch through the lens of Ovid’s poetry.
In Part 2 on April 29th at high noon, Erik Peterson will lead a session that includes live readings from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, a drawing workshop, and a hands-on art project that celebrates the transformations of Spring.
