Event details

Summer vacationers traverse the globe in search of new sights and experiences, but we’ve got them all right here! It’s stay-cation time – join us for a summer series of virtual art lectures and guided tours led by professional art historians and archeologists.

The fire that engulfed the Cathedral of Notre Dame in April of 2019 was an international cultural disaster of the first magnitude. This series of lectures about the Cathedral will not bemoan what has been lost but celebrate what remains intact as a gift of historical significance in world art and architecture. Imperious in its majestic scale – housing some of the most impressive architectural innovations of its age, along with sculpture, painting, stained glass and applied arts – it is a monument to the transcendental power of faith.

Please note: this interactive and hands-on event is hosted online, which means you get to enjoy it from the comfort of your living room, patio or kitchen table! An access link will be provided prior to the start of the event.
