I’ve been keeping my eyes open for useful things to share with everyone. The first search was for were those free Ivy League courses that I heard about on the news. This search led me to an NPR article that had a link for those courses, as well as a whole bunch of other incredible links to Broadway, music, fitness and even sports. To read the article Getting Bored? Here’s A List Of Free Things That Weren’t Free Before Coronavirus, click on the title and enjoy!
I got an email from a board member the other morning, telling me about a very timely article: I Spent a Year in Space, and I Have Tips on Isolation to Share, by astronaut Scott Kelly. A good read and sage advice!
I also want to reiterate the offering I told you about in my previous post. The executive director of a fellow Shepherd’s Center (yes, we are a part of a national network of almost 60 Shepherd’s Centers) is offering an online art history course this Friday. See the details below. I will be in attendance! Sending well wishes to all! Take good care – Julie
Online Art History: More than Just Stuff: Understanding Signs & Symbols in Paintings, Part 1
Friday, March 27, 12:00 pm ET (11:00 am CT)
Presented by Betsy Solomon, MA, Art Historian; Executive Director, Shepherd’s Center of Webster-Kirkwood; Chair, Shepherd’s Centers of America
Description: Animals, plants and objects of all kinds – these items are not simply incidental details in paintings. They reveal layers of meaning that help us to fully understand masterworks. We will explore the meaning that lies beneath symbols in a selection of well known, and a few lesser known, works of art.
