Event Details

A talk by Renee Dreyfus, Distinguished Curator and Curator in Charge of Ancient Art at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. “Last Supper in Pompeii brings us into the world of ancient Rome by focusing on the particulars of everyday life, influenced by the extensive, rich, and complex relationships between food, drink, and society. The objects on view not only capture our imagination but also whet our appetite, informing us of the glory that once was Rome.”

Made possible with generous funding from the Friends of Orinda Library, closed-captioning provided by the Library.

Join us at one of the Lamorinda Arts Council’s FREE Art Embraces Words  Zoom Webinar series in 2021. Remaining Sunday dates are Sep. 26 and Oct. 31.

Our Emcee introduces each writer and artist, plus fields questions from the audience. The program features emerging authors reading excerpts of their work, alternating with local artists displaying their visual art in a slideshow.  Authors and artists answer questions live-screen, which makes for a lively discussion. Co-chair Natalie Samuels Wheeler manages the tech side of our Zoom Webinar. The event is recorded and uploaded to social media. In this way the art still “embraces” the spoken word: “Ars Vita Longa, Vita Brevis” – art lives forever, life is short.
