× Art History Talks with Rebecca Albiani

Icons How does a work of art attain iconic status? This year's art history lecture series will tackle this question via an up-close look at five icons of world art, from the ancient world to the 20th century. We will delve into these works and the circumstances that produced them, exploring questions such as should the British Museum return the Parthenon marbles to Athens? Did the Night Watch really sink Rembrandt’s career? And what might constitute the Great American Picture? All lectures are held on Tuesdays at 11:30am Series tickets $60 - $80 Single tickets $16 - $24

The Parthenon January 8 The Parthenon, dedicated to the goddess Athena and constructed on the Athenian Acropolis between 447 and 432 BCE, has long been renowned for the elegance of its architecture and beauty of its sculpture. Examples of the Parthenon's influence are easy to find even in Washington State.
