The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art is excited to present art history lectures right here in the museum auditorium!

Executive Director, Dr. Brett Knappe will be presenting college level lectures surveying art history over the past 5,000 years.  These FREE lectures are open to the public.  Everyone is welcome to attend, whether you have studied art history in the past or not.  Not only will these lectures keep us fresh in our knowledge of art history, but they will give us the chance to share the knowledge with those that may not be familiar with the material.
