1 min read

The Pepperdine University Center for Faith and Learning invites faculty and staff members to partake in a lecture at Drescher Graduate Campus in Malibu, followed by a special trip to the exhibit “Renaissance and Reformation: German Art in the Age of Dürer and Cranach” at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), on Tuesday, December 20, from 8 AM to 4:30 PM.

The lecture will be presented by Michael Zakian, adjunct history professor and director of the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art. Participants will then be shuttled to LACMA for a docent-led tour of the exhibit and free time to explore other exhibits.

Marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in Europe, the exhibition portrays the profound changes in thought, philosophy, science, and religion, which subsequently influenced the work of artists such as Albrecht Dürer, Lucas Cranach, Hans Holbein, Mathias Grünwald, Tilman Riemenschneider, and Peter Vischer. The exhibition contains over 100 pieces of artwork, and includes arms and armors, drawings, paintings, and sculptures.

Transportation, museum tickets, and meals will be provided for the first 25 staff and faculty members that register through the Pepperdine University Google Form.
