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

College-level lectures comparing and contrasting a work of art in the museum’s collection with a well-known work of art.  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. Go on an adventure through history with us using the touchstone of artwork found right here in our museum!

2020 lecture dates:
Postponed to a later date: Alexis Carr’s “Holy Gash: The Shrine of the Virgin and the Female Body as Devotional Performance”

Wednesday, April 15th at 2:00 pm Madison McKinley’s “Influencing Salvation in Early Modern Europe: A Reassessment of Hieronymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights”
