Virtual Lecture – Uncorked! Wine, Objects & Tradition
May 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Leslie B. Grigsby, Senior Curator of Ceramics and Glass at Winterthur, presents a celebration of the objects and imagery created in response to society’s love of wine! Associated with religious ceremonies as well as entertainment, the beverage has been around for some 8,000 years. This lecture, originally inspired by Grigsby’s major exhibition by the same name at Winterthur (2012), presents a selection from the incredibly broad range of wine-related materials drawn from the Winterthur collections and promised gifts. From glassware and cellarettes to song sheets and paintings, the audience will share a look at how wine was marketed, consumed, and celebrated from the 1600s through the 1800s.
Cost: $15 per household for General Admission; $10 per household for HA Members and Volunteers
