July 21Uffizi   Where better to see Italian art than in the Uffizi which houses the collection begun by the Medici family in a magnificent building in the heart of Florence, the center of the Renaiassance. The collection boasts masterpieces by artists like Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, and Caravaggio. The images should bring back fond memories of art familiar to you and give ideas of works to look for on any future visit.

August 8Vatican Museums, Rome   Founded by Pope Julius II in the 16th century, the Vatican Museums inside Vatican City boast some of the world's most important art, from famous ancient sculptures like the Laocoon to Renaissance treasures like the frescoes by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel and by Raphael in the Pope's apartments. The buildings are spectacular too. With some 20,000 artworks on display there's plenty to choose from. I'll show some of my favorites.

Vincent van Gogh
Painter of Passion

11:30 am- 1:00 pm

Vincent Van Gogh's Self Portrait entered the DIA collection 100 years ago, the first work of his to be bought by a museum in the US. He had little success in his lifetime but that changed. His poignant story and expressive art now resonate with viewers. Join art historian Wendy Evans for a lively discussion of his art, life, and the advocates from his sister-in-law to the artists, collectors, dealers, and curators who told his story and promoted his art in the US. This presentation is designed to increase the enjoyment of the special exhibition Van Gogh in America that is at the DIA from October 2, 2022 to January 22, 2023.

$10 for residents/$12 for non-residents includes lunch.
