Senior Session Between Faith and Function: A 16th-Century Maiolica Pilgrim Bottle

10:15AM – 11:15AM
SPENCER MUSEUM OF ART, JACK AND LAVON BROSSEAU CENTER FOR LEARNING, 318

What, exactly, is a pilgrim bottle? Ashley Offill, PhD candidate in art history, discusses the Museum's 16th-century pilgrim bottle created by Orazio Fontana and explores the history of pilgrim bottles in the West and their reinterpretation as decorative domestic objects during the Renaissance. Senior Sessions are designed for senior citizens but open to all.
