Note: This class has been postponed. A new date will be announced shortly.

Home to over two million masterworks spanning cultures and time periods, the Metropolitan Museum of Art can be somewhat daunting. Rather than trying to see everything on view, we study carefully chosen works of painting, sculpture, jewelry, and tapestry from important world art centers representing major movements in art. From a 3,000-year Hittite gold pendant to an Artist’s Studio painted in 2019 we will scrutinize each work, asking the important When? Where? By whom? and Why? 

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years and has lead study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been favorites for years.

What Students Are Saying about Kerrin Meis

I love that Kerrin discusses little known sites and anecdotes. She makes you want to get out your map and go off the beaten path. Recently we knew the Jeopardy answer “What is the Stone of Scone?” because of her!!! Kerrin is magic. – Vikki D.
