to celebrate the exhibition

“Michelangelo: Art and Afterlife”

on view in the Zuckert Gallery
December 6 through December 23, 2012
Bowdoin College Museum of Art

This student-organized exhibition highlights the influence of Michelangelo's art and the legend of his character in the years after his death. Reproductive prints by Renaissance artists, images of Michelangelo, and drawings that emulate his style comprise the show. Viewers are offered a pithy example of how Michelangelo made his mark on more than the Sistine Chapel.

The exhibition was organized by students in Associate Professor of Art History Susan Wegner's seminar, AH 324: "Art and Life of Michelangelo."
