Art in Focus: Chasuble of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese


Apr 19, 2018
11:00 AM until 12:00 PM


Each event in our Art in Focus series offers an opportunity for an hour of close looking and informal discussion around a single work of art, led by Curator of Education Michelle DiMarzo. On April 19, we'll be looking at the exquisite embroidered chasuble, or liturgical vestment, belonging to Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, patron of the church of the Gesù in Rome. This extraordinary object comes to us on loan from the church for the exhibition The Holy Name. Art of the Gesù: Bernini and his Age (February 2 - May 19, 2018).

Join us for the opportunity to engage deeply with this work of art in a relaxed atmosphere. Reserve your seat now!
