Wednesday, March 13, 2017 - 2:00 - 3:00 pm

In this informative talk, special guest Kelley Prendergast gives an overview of the art, architecture, and mythology surrounding the landscape and ancient gardens in temples and buildings throughout Pompeii.

This pictorial presentation explores some of the myths, religion, and symbols incorporated into the artworks of Pompeii, an ancient Roman city near modern Naples in Italy.

"In Pompeii, one of the most famous of the luxurious residences (domus) is the so-called House of the Vettii, preserved like the rest of the Roman city by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. The house is named for its owners, two successful freedmen: Aulus Vettius Conviva, an Augustalis, and Aulus Vettius Restitutus. Its careful excavation has preserved almost all of the wall frescos, which were completed following the earthquake of 62 AD, in the manner art historians term the 'Pompeiian Fourth Style.'" ~ Info from Wikipedia.

RSVP required.

● Read and write poetry through participatory and directed writing exercises
● Use traditional reed pens and ink to explore the possibilities of Islamic calligraphy (prior knowledge of the language or calligraphy is not necessary)
● Create independently and collaboratively with other participants
● You'll leave with your own poetry and calligraphy art!

For the workshop, please bring with you an image or object that you associate with your culture - we encourage you to interpret culture openly and in ways that are important to you!
