The School of Art and PBS of Montana State University announces The Power of Art Guest Lecture Series. Internationally acclaimed scholar and writer Simon Schama tells the dramatic stories of eight troublemaker artists…eight stories of disaster, triumph and the cutting-edge masterpieces that ultimately changed the way the world looks at art. PBS and the School of Art will show the film concerning the Italian sculptor Gianlorenzo Bernini, focusing particularly on his time working on the famous sculpture, the Ecstasy of St. Teresa. A discussion panel will follow the film with members of the MSU faculty.
Art film, discussion, and reception: February 26, 2008, 6:30 PM, Reynold’s Recital room, Howard Hall, MSU campus.
This is the second edition of a popular event that took place on campus in October of 2007. We are please to host another evening of film, discussion, and a wine and cheese reception. The events are free and we strongly encourage the public to attend.
