Presented as part of Vanderbilts Saturday program, Eye and Mind: Lectures on Art Works in the Vanderbilt Collection offers five presentations on consecutive Saturdays focused on specific works of art, facilitated by expert faculty members. Each lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer period and an opportunity to examine the various pieces under discussion up-close. Offered as an opportunity for adult, life-long learning, the $50 price tag comes out to the cost of five films in Green Hills or a month of rather cheap brunches. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning. Visit vanderbilt.edu/saturday to register. This week's lecture will feature art history professor Leonard Folgarait discussing Jean Cocteau's print Mediterranee.
Saturdays, 9:30-11:30 a.m. Starts: Feb. 6. Continues through March 6, 2010
