The ABCs of Art History

Want to talk about art like an expert? Or at least be able to pretend to? Are you eager to wow your friends and family at reunions and cocktail parties with your astute knowledge of key art terms and concepts? Or have you just been confused — like so many of us — by what the definition of “abstract” is or by weird and fancy-sounding words on museum labels like “impasto,” “Caravaggiesque,” and “sfumato”?

Well, this Thursday night, A is for Art. And F is for Fun.

Grab your pens and paper because have we got the crash course for you! Join Dr. Alex Rich, Executive Director and Chief Curator, as he gathers three art historian colleagues with diverse specializations for a fun, interactive night as they go over the ABCs of Art History. With an alphabet of letters to choose from, these four art historians will be on call, ready to chat about the words every armchair art historian should know and to clarify any art terms and ideas that YOU would like to understand better.

Dr. Rich will be joined by Dr. Kristen Carter, Assistant Professor of Art History at Florida Southern College; Dr. Victoria Addona, postdoctoral fellow at McGill University; and Keidra Daniels Navaroli, former Assistant Director and Curator of the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts at Florida Institute of Technology, as they take all of your questions LIVE. Learn more!

With your most pressing ART VOCAB questions in hand, join us on Facebook Live or via Zoom Thursday, September 17th at 6pm!  Give us an hour:  we’ll make you sound like an expert in no time.
