The Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Tuesday, July 1st at Noon
June 21, 2014 by Dr. Michael G. Mathews
La Danse by Adolphe -William Bouguereau reflects the importance of dance in French culture. His portrait of Mademoiselle Martha Hoskier hangs in the museum at Santa Barbara. She is beautifully dressed in the painting and one wonders what she must have looked like while dancing. Join our faculty and students from the Santa Barbara Historical Dance Weekend Plus as we dance our way through time, linking the eras of the dances and the paintings to give a more physical understanding of the shared aesthetics between popular and high culture.
This free event offered at noon is co-sponsored by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the New York Baroque Dance Company funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. DIRECTIONS
