The Holy Name: Art of the Gesù
May 6, 2018 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am EDT
In 2018, Fairfield University Art Museum presented The Holy Name – Art of the Gesù: Bernini and his Age, an exhibition which Philip de Montebello has called “simply incredible.” Dr. Wolk-Simon, the director of the Museum, introduces some of the dazzling and historically important works of art she was able to assemble to tell the twin stories of the rise of the Society of Jesus in Rome and the building and embellishment of the Gesù, its glorious mother church, in the very center of the city. Prior to being the Director of the Fairfield University Art Museum, Dr. Linda Wolk-Simon held prestigious positions at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Morgan Library & Museum.
