“Art & Ideas” Series offered at the Figge
The Figge Art Museum presents the third lecture in a four-part series entitled “Celebrating Ideas” at 7 pm Thursday, April 21. Dr. Emil Kramer, Associate Professor and Chair of Classics at Augustana College will present the lecture “Egypt, Athens, Rome—and Us: Five Millennia of Connections through Art.” The lecture series is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition Celebrating Ideas: Bridging Communities with Augustana’s Liberal Arts through the AGES, on view at the Figge through May 29. The exhibition of 100 works is in celebration of Augustana’s 150th anniversary, and presents a rich and diverse art historical overview of pieces from the Augustana College Art Collection.
Professor Kramer’s talk will highlight the ideas behind School of Athens, a fresco painted by the Renaissance master Raphael in 1510-11. This well known image depicts the Classical Greek Philosophers Plato and Aristotle surrounded by mathematicians, naturalists, astronomers, geographers, and other philosophers. Pope Julius II commissioned School of Athens, along with twelve other frescoes, for one room in the Vatican palace. An engraving by Joannes (Giovanni) Volpato after a drawing by Joseph (Giuseppe) Cades of Raphael’s School of Athens is included in the Augustana exhibition.
The “Celebrating Ideas” series is part of the Figge’s weekly Thursdays at the Figge programming. Admission to the museum and lecture is $7. Admission is free to Figge members and Figge institutional members. The Figge Arts Café and Bar will be open before and after the lecture.
