Lecture: Elana Kaplan: Birds in Art
Please join us for our April 11th lecture (our monthly Second Wednesday Series) for “Metropolitan Birds” presented by Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Elana Kaplan.
From East to West, from paintings to sculpture to stained glass windows, birds feature prominently in various works of art. In this art talk, we will explore works of art from the Metropolitan Museum of Art that contain bird imagery. The artwork will include a Tiffany stained glass window, a Brancusi sculpture, European paintings, Egyptian sculpture and Japanese scrolls.
