Amelia B. Winkler - Fridays. Oct. 9, 16, 23, 2015; 1:30-3:30 pm. "Body Parts in the Arts"
From ancient fertility cult statues with their enormous breasts to Michelagelo's David with his enormous hands -- throughout the ages, artists have drawn inspiration from looking closely at their fellow creatures. In these three sessions, we will examine art and poety of the human hand, breast and nose, as well as of the many other parts that make up that wondrous thing that is the human body.
