Popsicles and Songs in the Park

Bring a blanket to sit on the lawn and enjoy some fun tunes as we say goodbye to summer with this closing concert. We’ll have some face painting, outdoor fun-and-games and a sweet popsicle treat while supplies last. The fun begins at 1:30 followed by a concert and popsicles at 2pm.

Art: Witches in Northern European Art

Why are witches and covens such popular subjects of art during the Northern European Renaissance? We will discuss this intriguing issue by looking at the works of Hans Baldung Grien, Albrecht Durer and others. We will explore paintings and prints depicting witches and examine cultural attitudes that led to the production of such eye-catching works. Ann Shifflet, instructor at the Columbus College of Art and Design, is our presenter.
