COMPLIMENTARY WEBINAR for the North Kingstown Council of the Arts | “Il Gigante: Michelangelo and The David“
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
Michelangelo’s statue of the David has been described as the greatest sculpture of all time. Standing 17 ft. 1 in. in height, and weighing just over 5 tons, the sheer scale of the statue is breathtaking. Yet, there is much more to this sculpture than just its size. This lecture will explore the history, iconography and importance of the sculpture that probably best defines the Renaissance and the great artist who produced it.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
