The History of Art

When: Sat., March 21, 12-1 p.m. 2015

From the luscious bellies of the Renaissance to the thigh gaps in contemporary magazines, there’s no doubt that body preferences have shifted over time. In The History of Art: Sexuality and Changing Body Shapes Throughout the Ages, scholar and artist Rowynn Dumont challenges women’s body image through the lens of the past. The workshop explores historic standards and aesthetic values, inviting participants to ask, “Is there a true ideal body type?” Southtown’s Sexology Institute and Boutique hosts Dumont as part of their ongoing education series.
