Revealing the Early Renaissance: Stories and Secrets in Florentine Art

Revealing the Early Renaissance: Stories and Secrets in Florentine Art will explore how the city’s burgeoning economy of the time fostered a unique demand for artworks both religious and civic, as well as the collaborative nature of artistic production, a closer look at the workshops of artists, the stories behind the works and their subjects and insight into conservation research. Visitors will interact with the exhibition at numerous hands-on stations, offering the opportunity to explore inside the Renaissance artist’s studio, discover the pigments and tools used, hear music from a book whose pages will be reunited for the first time in over a century, view footage of Florence and see aspects of the works through the microscopes of conservators.

This tour is totally dedicated to the art of the sandwich. You will visit and devour meats that have been marinated from 24 hours – 3 days. This tour promises to include menu items that are slow cooked, sloppy, and stacked with meat. The only prerequisite is plenty of napkins, two hands and maybe a fork. Are you “Insanewich” enough to join us?
