The School of Art at Kent State University presents the next of the First Friday Lecture Series on Dec. 7 at 12 p.m. with Megan Holmes, Ph.D., art historian and professor of Italian Renaissance at the University of Michigan. The lecture will take place in Room 165 in the Center for the Visual Arts building, located at 325 Terrace Drive in Kent.
Dr. Holmes will speak about the intentional defacement of Italian paintings in the 14th and 15th centuries and frames this work in relation to conceptions about “vandalism” and “iconoclasm” and contemporary attacks on cultural heritage. This lecture is free and open public.
Cost: Free and open to the public.
