Excuse our dust!

The Newberry is undergoing an extensive first floor renovation in 2018. This project will be ongoing during the Summer 2018 seminar term. The Adult Education Seminars Program still has use of the basement classrooms, but please check this link frequently for the latest conditions - which exterior doors are open or closed, where to find an accessible entrance, which restrooms are available, etc.

Because of the renovation, the Newberry Bookstore will be closed during the Summer 2018 term. As such, seminar participants will be responsible for acquiring all required texts for their seminars on their own. We apologize sincerely for the inconvenience, and appreciate your understanding. We have put together a list of helpful resources that should make it easy to find the books you need.

Seminar Description

In the seventeenth century, Holland and Flanders were buzzing with an amazing creative vitality. Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, Rubens, and Van Dyke were all at work, along with a host of their equally talented compatriots. It was an age of new mercantilism and a rising middle class, which helped fuel a coterie of artists who created a new kind art for ordinary people and homes, not only for the nobility and royalty. Their art had a beauty, humanity, and accessibility that inspired early American art and is having a resurgence of popularity today. One session.

Judy Pomeranz is an art critic and advisor, who has taught, presented lectures, and conducted tours on a wide variety of art historical subject throughout the United States.
