CCR Remote Lecture: Venus de Milo - May 22, 2020

The ancient marble sculpture known as the Venus de Milo is today a prized possession of the Louvre in Paris. Although the work has achieved iconic status, visitors are not always aware of the many dramatic events in the work’s history, or why this became a work which for many defines the idea of classical Greek art.

Let’s spend a lazy evening (or morning, as the case may be), sipping on something refreshing, as we trace the statue’s history, which now spans over two thousand years and involves interesting ideas about identity, culture, nationhood, and gender.

When: Friday, May 22, 2020,
Time: 6.00 p.m. Rome (Central European) Time.
Where: at your home (and where the lecture takes you).
Cost: €10 for members and €15 for non-members. Advance payment required payable by transfer to the CCR bank account.
RSVP: ATTN Joe by 1 p.m. Central European Time on Wed. May 20, 2020. You are financially responsible for your reservation.
