Sacred Heart offers art lectures

During the month of October, the Convent of the Sacred Heart will present a series of three lectures that will be open to the general public.

On Oct. 9, there was a digital slide presentation about the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel ceiling, considered one of Michelangelo’s greatest masterpieces, and one of the most important art works of the Renaissance. Then on Tuesday, Oct. 16, there will be a presentation on American art and domestic architecture of the 18th century, featuring the works of Paul Revere, Gilbert Stuart and John Singleton Copley, and a study of the Morris-Jumel Mansion, New York City’s oldest house.

 

The last program, on Oct. 23 will focus on American 19th century art and domestic architecture that will emphasize the work of Louis Comfort Tiffany, John Singer Sargent and Jasper Cropsey.

Programs begin at 10 a.m. in the school chapel, 1177 King Street. The cost is $25 each for Oct. 16 and Oct. 23.
