"Larger Than Life: When Tradition, Modernity and Politics Meet," a lecture series that examines Mexican muralists, began Wednesday, May 9 at 7 p.m. at the Reading Public MuseumThe series, led by art expert Marlisa Mizerak, coincides with the current Contemporary Latin American Folk Art exhibit from San Antonio Museum of Art now on display at the Reading Public Museum.
Mizerak, a former employee of the Reading Public Museum, will return to share her insight into the Mexican Renaissance art period of history entitled, "Speaking Through the Walls."
She led a lecture series last fall on impressionism and is excited to bring an overview that is simplistic enough for those with little art history background and unique enough for the experienced art lover.
The first lecture will delve into the 20th century group of politically-minded artists with some familiar artists as well as lesser known artists like Jose Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros.
Seating is limited and reservations are a must. The cost is $10 for members per lecture and $20 for non-members.
