We surround ourselves with objects and works of art are just one type of the many material objects we encounter. Material culture is all around us, representing our culture, values, beliefs or experiences. Often each object carries its own biography. This talk will discuss the application of material culture and how a close examination of objects depicted in paintings can reveal meaning and historical context.
This event is free and open to the public.
