Guided Tour at the MET: ART & RACE in Spain’s Golden Age + Brunch
April 15 @ 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM EDT$36.00
Join our exclusive art tour in Spanish and learn about “this exhibition that offers an unprecedented look at the life and artistic achievements of seventeenth-century Afro-Hispanic painter Juan de Pareja. Pareja was enslaved in Velázquez’s studio for over two decades before becoming an artist in his own right. This presentation is the first to tell his story and examine the ways in which enslaved artisanal labor and a multiracial society are inextricably linked with the art and material culture of Spain’s Golden Age”.
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about art, meet amazing people and practice Spanish. After the tour visit, the group will go to a local Mexican restaurant on 86th Street for brunch. Space is limited, RSVP now!
