    Susan Dackerman, Carl A. Weyerhaeuser Curator of Prints, Division of European and American Art

    Albrecht Dürer is best known for his paintings and prints of fine art subjects (portraits, religious and genre scenes). Yet during his lifetime he was also celebrated for his contributions to the burgeoning Scientific Revolution. Like Leonardo da Vinci, he had a significant influence on the astronomy, cartography, mathematics, and natural history of his time. This lecture will examine those lesser-known aspects of his production.

    This popular series of special evenings features talks by curators, after-hours viewing of the galleries, live music, conversation, and refreshments. Enjoy all the Art Museums have to offer! Evenings begin at 6pm; lectures begin at 6:30pm.
