There is a lot going on at the world-class Bowers Museum in Santa Ana. I am a member but don’t visit as often as I should. Their programs and lectures cater to a variety of interests. They are beginning a series in October which sounds very intriguing. My blog readers might be interested in the 6-part Art in Context: Art & the City. The lecturer will tell us about the lesser known museums and works of art in these cities.

Part 1 – October 5th     Rome: from Ancient to Modern

Part 2 – October 12th   Paris: Gothic & Fauvist

Part 3 – October 19th   Amsterdam: The Golden Age

Part 4 – October 26th  Vienna: Baroque to Jugendstil

Part 5 – November 2    Barcelona: Roman & Modernista

Part 6 – November 9    Berlin: City Divided
