Open to all university students. Registration Required. Cosponsored with Calvert House.

Mary is the most-depicted woman in the history of Western art, which means that images of her are both ubiquitous and bewildering in their variety. Marian images are used in the Christian liturgy, for private devotion, for political statements, and for pushing boundaries—and for almost everything else as well.
 
Join University of Chicago graduate students Fr. Gabriel Torretta, OP, and Lauren Beversluis for a visit to the Chicago Art Institute as they explain the building blocks of Marian images by discussing works that span both Mary’s own life and its living history in painting.
