The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University will present a free lecture on one of the world’s greatest museums, the Louvre. The lecture will be held on Tuesday, November 27, from 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm at the Hodges Naples campus, 2655 Northbrooke Drive, just off I-75, in Naples.
The Louvre in Paris is probably the most famous art museum in the world, with millions of guests visiting each year to look at its incredible collections. A universal museum, its collections span thousands of years of history and house many iconic Western artworks, from the Venus di Milo and Winged Victory to Leonardo’s Mona Lisa and Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People. This class will look at works the Louvre lists as its two dozen masterpieces of all times, and explore some of the museum’s other famous European paintings.
The session will be conducted by Carol Jonson. She has been an instructor with The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) at Hodges University since 1996. She has served on the CLL Advisory Board since its inception. Carol earned bachelors and master’s degrees in English literature from Wayne State University in Detroit, and did post-graduate work in Medieval and Renaissance English at the University of Detroit.
