Milwaukee Art Museum Bus Tour: "Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums" 

With Professor Meghan Flynn & Professor Emeritus James LaMalfa
October 17, 2014

UW-Marinette Art Professor Meghan Flynn and Professor Emeritus James LaMalfa will lead a bus tour to the Milwaukee Art Museum’s exhibit, “Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting from Glasgow Museums” on Friday, October 17. Art students and interested community members are encouraged to attend. The tour leaves the UW-Marinette campus at 7:00 a.m. and will return by 6:00 p.m. The fee is $45 and includes round trip travel to Milwaukee and admission to the museum. Space is limited, advanced registration and payment is required. 

The Milwaukee Art Museum is the only Midwest stop on this rare exhibition’s tour. The exhibit features religious and secular Italian art from the late Middle Ages and Renaissance along with secular Neoclassical and genre paintings of the 19th century. Early oil paintings by Giovanni Bellini, Sandro Botticelli and Titian will be on display as well as 18th and 19th century painters such as Francesco Guardi and Antonio Mancini. More than 40 paintings from Bologna, Florence, Milan, Naples, Rome and Venice will be on display. LaMalfa, who has done extensive research on Italian art, said “This is a unique opportunity to view Italian art from Glasgow museums. Many of the works have been recently restored and many have never left Scotland previously. The museum’s permanent collection is also open, but will close on October 19as the museum is doing extensive new construction after that date."
