When: Mon., Oct. 5, 6-8 p.m. 2015
Marcy B. Freedman is an artist and an art historian with a profoundly silly interest in studying works of art that make people laugh. Freedman will present an overview of the history of humor in western art, showing examples of ancient Roman frescoes, medieval manuscript illustrations, and Renaissance paintings. Freedman has invited two local artists to assist her in making sure that everyone keeps on laughing. Carla Rae Johnson and Gene Panczenko will share their own comedic talents with the lucky audience.
