THE FINE ART OF COMMISSIONS: From Michelangelo to the Present
Sun, February 26, 2017, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM EST
A look at the historical tradition of commissioned art and how patrons can inspire artists to produce their greatest works.
Join us for a lively discussion about the often complicated relationship between master artists and their patrons, from the time of Michelangelo to the present. Complemented with Tuscan wines and small plates by Chef Francesco Ricchi, nationally acclaimed artist and former professor of art at Georgetown and George Washington Universities, Bradley Stevens (www.bradleystevens.com) leads us through the creative process, as artists juggle their patrons' desires with staying true to their own vision.
