Opening Reception and Panel Discussion for Dangerous WomenArt Exhibitions
Courageous heroines and deceptive femmes fatales abound in the Old and New Testaments. From Judith to Esther, Salome to Mary Magdalene, Delilah to Lot’s Daughters and Potiphar’s wife, these women — perceived as dangerous to society — shaped biblical history. The Patricia and Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU presents the world premiere of Dangerous Women, the timely new exhibition that explores shifting perceptions of these historic characters, whose power to topple the strongest of male rulers made them “dangerous” but whose strength serves as an historical foundation for thinking about contemporary causes. Panel discussion about feminism in art history and the lives of women in Renaissance society from 3 to 4 p.m., led by the museum’s Director, Dr. Jordana Pomeroy. Free and open to the public.
