Virtual Class: Kerrin Meis - Mastering the Met (via Zoom)

Saturday, November 7, 2020 - 1:00pm

Two Saturdays: November 7 & 14 • 1:00-2:30pm PT • $80 • Hosted via Zoom

The Metropolitan Museum has re-opened! If you aren't comfortable making the trip to NYC, you may want to join Kerrin Meis in Zoom lectures on November 7 and 14. Home to over two million masterworks spanning many cultures and time periods, the Met can be somewhat daunting. We will study carefully chosen works of painting, sculpture and jewelry from important world centers representing major movements in art. From a 3,000-year-old Hittite gold pendant to an Artist's Studio painted in 2019, we will scrutinize each work, asking the important When? Where? By Whom? For Whom? and Why?

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