About The Event

Come to the CMA for a quick bite of art history. Every first Tuesday of each month, join curators, conservators, scholars, and other museum staff for 30-minute talks on objects currently on display in the museum galleries.

Have you ever wanted to know the meanings behind the many flowers and animals that appear in European art? In this talk, curator Emily J. Peters discusses the abundant symbolism surrounding botanical and zoological imagery in Renaissance prints, coinciding with the exhibition Love Gardens / Forbidden Fruit.

This program is made possible with support from Gail C. and Elliott L. Schlang.
