Led by the Fairfield University Art Museum's Curator of Education and Academic Engagement Michelle DiMarzo, PhD, on Thursday, December 13, visitors will look at a late 15th-century painting of the Madonna and Child by an unknown north Italian painter, part of the museum’s Samuel H. Kress Collection.

During each event in the series, one painting or sculpture from the museum’s collection takes center stage for an hour of close looking and informal discussion.

"Join us for the opportunity to engage deeply with this work of art in a relaxed atmosphere," said Dr. DiMarzo, who explained the free series has been popular this semester with at least 15 patrons attending each event.

An academic and cultural resource for students, faculty, and residents of the surrounding geographic community and region, the Fairfield University Art Museum offers meaningful opportunities for first-hand experience of original works of art and their unique historical resonance.
