When: Wed., Dec. 18, 12:30-1:30 p.m. 2019
Join Christine Zepeda, Ph.D student in art history at UT, for a special tour of “Medieval Monsters: Terrors, Aliens, Wonders.” Her research interests include medieval manuscripts and manuscript marginalia - particularly hybrids and monstrous creatures - medieval art of the British Isles and the visual culture of royal and cloistered women in medieval England. From griffins and giants to demons and dragons, monsters have enthralled people throughout time. In medieval art and literature, these fanciful creatures give form to fears, curiosities and fantasies of the unfamiliar and the unknown. The event is free with museum admission.
