Art in the Plague Years: The Black Death to Current Times

29 July @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Join Sharon Carter on an art journey like no other. We will begin our exploration in the 14th century, during the era of the Black Death, and look at the beginnings of the grim reaper and dance of death themes. As we travel to the 15th and 16th centuries, we will explore the death and the maiden motif, and look at Holbein and Brueghel paintings. Moving to the 17th century, we’ll consider the great plagues of London and Italy before jumping to the Spanish Flu in 1918 to look at artists who died from the flu, and finish with street artists and painters during COVID-19 creating hope and solidarity.
