(315)- 443 -2201
Michelangelo Buonarroti has been celebrated for more than 450 years as a sculptor, painter, architect, poet and patriot. This fall, members of the Syracuse University and Central New York communities will have an opportunity to experience his genius firsthand through “Rethinking Michelangelo: A Series of Lectures, Concerts, and Special Events.” Featured guests include award-winning soprano Anita Johnson, the Schola Cantorum of Syracuse and William Edward Wallace, the Barbara Murphy Bryant Distinguished Professor of Art History at Washington University, among others.
“Rethinking Michelangelo” complements “Michelangelo: The Man and the Myth,” an unprecedented exhibition at the SUArt Galleries Aug. 12-Oct. 19. The exhibition will include more than a dozen of the Renaissance master’s original drawings and writings on loan from the Casa Buonarroti in Florence, Italy. Some of the works have never been exhibited in the United States. The exhibition will also appear at the Louise and Bernard Palitz Gallery at SU’s Joseph I. Lubin House in New York City from Nov. 4-Jan. 4, 2009.
Further information about the exhibition and related events is available on the “Michelangelo: The Man and the Myth” website at http://michelangelo.syr.edu/.
The concerts are open to the general public. Discounted paid parking will be available in the Irving Garage.
