Easter Week Art Tour
I arranged a tour of the Medieval and Renaissance galleries at the Nelson Adkins Museum of Art for the Catholic homeschoolers hoping that many would want to come on their "Easter break." We were fortunate enough to have a wonderful tour guide, who knew the history and symbolism in the art works. They have installed a full-size cloister from 1400s France, an altar piece from Italy 1400s, and this famous "John the Baptist" of 1605 by Caravaggio.
