Art To Drive For: Masterpieces Within A Four Hour Drive

Edoardo Mungiello, PhD, adjunct art instructor, muralist

So many of us would love to visit and revisit the Sistine Chapel or stroll through Chartres Cathedral, sit and gaze at the Pyramids or enjoy a prolonged contemplation of Rembrandt’s Prodigal Son. But unless we are fabulously wealthy and know where to look when we travel, most of us must be content with pictures. There isn’t that caliber of masterpiece stateside, is there? In fact, there are incredible masterpieces throughout the Northeast, and not just at the Met. Join Dr. Mungiello and bring your inner detective as we roam the halls of the Frick Collection, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Collection, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Collection and many more to discover the jewels of art that are truly worth the trip. 4 SESSIONS
