Feb 3 Trip Info:

Thanks to the generosity of the department and a TBC grant, I’ve been able to charter a 38-seat bus to go to Detroit a week from Friday (Feb. 3) to see the exhibition “Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus.”  Below is the link to the DIA page about the exhibition.

This exhibition opened in Paris at the Louvre, travelled to Philadelphia, and will close in Detroit on February 12.   This is a unique opportunity.  Among the major works on exhibition are The Supper at Emmaus from the Louvre, six Heads of Christ, a fine impression of the 100 Guilder Print, and paintings, prints, and drawings from London, New York, Paris, Amsterdam, and other venues.   There are about 45 works specifically attributed to Rembrandt in the exhibition, along with about 25 more which are his studio or other artists.

The trip is on Friday, February 3.  Leaving from the Library circle at 8:30 AM (will NOT wait).  Returning to same at about 8:30 PM.

Cost to students and faculty: $5.00.   (Students in “The Age of Rembrandt” are exempt from this fee.)

The fee includes transportation, admission to the museum and the exhibition “Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus,” and a box lunch/dinner with water.

There should be wi-fi on the bus.

Sign-up in the department office, 306 Riley, starting on Wednesday, Jan 25.
