FUAM: Exhibition Tour: Out of the Kress Vaults with exhibition curator @ Bellarmine Hall, Bellarmine Hall Galleries
Dec 10 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Join us for the last FREE exhibition tour for Out of the Kress Vaults, on view through December 17, 2022!

 

Join us in the Bellarmine Hall Galleries for a special tour with Michelle DiMarzo, PhD, curator of Out of the Kress Vaults: Women in Sacred Renaissance Painting.

Please note: This event is in-person only. Space is limited to 15 registrants.

 

About Out of the Kress Vaults: The exhibition explores representations of femininity and virtue in Italian Renaissance paintings of the Virgin Mary, female saints, and nuns. This exhibition is the first in the museum’s history to be co-curated with Fairfield University students. Taking inspiration from two paintings of the Madonna and Child in the museum’s own Samuel H. Kress Collection, students in Dr. Michelle DiMarzo’s art history seminar developed the exhibition by examining Kress collections at other institutions, with an emphasis on works typically held in storage.
