Greenwich Decorative Arts Society presents Winter’s Magic at the Cloisters

The Greenwich Decorative Arts Society (formerly The Greenwich Antiques Society) presents Winter’s Magic at the Cloisters, a lecture by Barbara Drake Boehm, Paul and Jill Ruddock Senior Curator, Department of Medieval Art and The Cloisters, Metropolitan Museum of Art Monday, Jan. 4, at 1:15 p.m., at The Bruce Museum, Greenwich.

While most visitors flock to The Cloisters Museum and Gardens in springtime, Barbara Drake Boehm sees it year round and believes it possesses special magic in Winter. Dr. Boehm will share that sense with us and invite us to see how the months of cold were marked, endured, and even celebrated in the Middle Ages.

A prolific and world-renowned scholar, Barbara Drake Boehm is currently co-curating a major international loan exhibition, Every People Under Heaven: Jerusalem 1000-1400, together with her Met colleague Melanie Holcomb. A graduate of Wellesley College, Dr. Boehm directs the Curatorial Studies program, administered with the Institute of Fine Arts, from which she received her PhD.

Admission for non-members of the Greenwich Decorative Arts Society is $25. Space is limited.  Reservations required for members and guests by December 28.  For reservations and information: [email protected] or 203-322-2967.  The Bruce Museum, 1 Museum Drive, Greenwich.
