Sunday Object Talk - Laura Leonard

Sunday, May 12, 2013 at 2:00pm to 2:15pm

Allen Memorial Art Building 87 North Main Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Laura Leonard (OC '13) will speak about the painting "Double Portrait of a Boy and Girl of the Attavanti Family" by Sofonisba Anguissola and dating from the early 1580s. It is currently on view in the exhibition "Religion, Ritual and Performance in the Renaissance."

Offered most Sundays during the academic year, these talks are orientated specifically towards the casual visitor to the AMAM. Each talk focuses on one work in the collection or on view in a current exhibition, and lasts approximately fifteen minutes plus questions. Conducted by an Oberlin College student docent, these talks are a fantastic opportunity to learn about new objects or revisit old ‘friends’ from the collection.

Talks begin at 2pm in the King Sculpture Court.
