THIS EVENT WILL BE LIVE STREAMED

With small picturesque ports, lively tavernas, and blue-domed churches clustered alongside white sandy beaches, the Cyclades are many people’s idyllic vision of Greece. In “Art and Religion in the Cyclades,” we will join Dr. Chris Adamson, a classical archaeologist and educator, as he explores the islands long and rich history through the religious art produced there over the last five millennia.

The lecture will examine the iconic minimalist figures of prehistoric “Cycladic Culture,” known to have influenced modern artists such as Pablo Picasso and Henry Moore; we will look more closely at some familiar (and less familiar) masterpieces of Classical Greece produced in the islands, including Venus de Milo; and we will navigate the development of Greek Christian art in the islands through to the modern period.

Pre-registration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the presentation will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the first session.
