Nicknamed Il Divino (the divine one) by his contemporaries on account of his mastery of drawing design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, Michelangelo is the subject of an expansive exhibit at the Met, running from November 13, 2017 to February 12, 2018. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today.  This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, an early painting, and a wood architectural model along with a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context.  Please note: the Met will not be allowing any guided tours of this exhibit.

Coinciding with David Hockney’s 80th birthday, this exhibition, running from November 27, 2017 to February 25, 2018 will present iconic works and key moments of his career from 1960 to the present.  With equal measures of wit and intelligence, Hockney’s art has examined how movement, space, and time can be captured in two dimensions. From his early adaptations of high-modernist abstraction, through plays with illusion and realism, to recent work in multi-screen videos, the key theme of his sustained investigation of the nature of looking will run throughout the retrospective.

Schedule : Weekly - Wed 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM; starting 12/6/2017, ending 12/6/2017

Tuition: $25.00
