Newberry Adult Education Seminars will meet both virtually and in the building for the Winter/Spring term. Although we are still primarily virtual, you will find a smaller selection of in-person seminars in the schedule. For more information about the Newberry’s virtual seminars, including a Zoom tutorial, please see our Virtual Seminars FAQ page. If you have questions about online learning, please reach out to email@example.com. Registration opens Wednesday, January 19th at 9am (Central time). Registration will take place through our online platform, Learning Stream.
Explore the dynamic art and compelling life of the Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio through a discussion of images and selected readings. Caravaggio’s vivid and radical style, often controversial in his lifetime, inspired followers in Italy and throughout Europe, and it still speaks powerfully to viewers today.
