MICHELANGELO’S DAVID: EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW

February 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free
Artist, critic, and educator Gary Faigin offers a lively look at one of world’s most famous, and venerated artworks, Michelangelo’s David.  Even for those who have seen the original in Florence, Faigin offers new insights and historical perspectives.
Why, for instance, is it so large?  Why is it carved out of marble, rather than cast in bronze, like earlier versions? And why, at a time when Florence had just established a fragile and threatened republic, was it thought worthy of civic support?
We’ll revisit a fascinating and often misunderstood time, when artistic giants like Raphael and Leonardo were at the heights of their careers, and larger-than-life political characters like Machiavelli and Cesare Borgia strode the Italian stage.
Tuesday /  February 28th / 7-8:30pm
