    RE-SCHEDULED: SCREENING OF “THE RAPE OF EUROPA”

    April 24, 2019 | 5:30 PM | Tucker Hall, Tucker Theater
    Re-scheduled for Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at 5:30 PM, please join us for a screening of The Rape of Europa in conjunction with our Muscarelle Explorations: Art Repatriation series! The Rape of Europa tells the epic story of the systematic theft, deliberate destruction and miraculous survival of Europe’s art treasures during the Third Reich and World War II. In a journey through seven countries, the film takes viewers into the violent whirlwind of fanaticism, greed, and warfare that threatened to wipe out the artistic heritage of Europe. Now, more than sixty years later, the legacy of this tragic history continues to play out as families of looted collectors recover major works of art, conservators repair battle damage, and nations fight over the fate of ill-gotten spoils of war.   This series of programs is presented in cooperation with the following: William & Mary Art and Cultural Heritage Law Society; Cultural Heritage Partners, a law firm dedicated exclusively to serving cultural heritage clients; and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Run time: 117 minutes; a brief introduction by the Student Organizers will precede the screening.   Free and open to the public.

    MUSCARELLE EXPLORATIONS: SELECTED TOPICS IN ARCHITECTURE

    Presenting Art: The Importance of the Vessel | May 23, 2019 6:00 PM, Integrated Science Center, Room 1221 | David Brashear, Interim Director, Muscarelle Museum of Art
    Art Museums loom large on the cultural landscape, and when new ones are built, they are important opportunities to present the current state of architectural and design thinking.  In this lecture, we will explore recently constructed museums in America, including smaller museums on college campuses and larger institutions that serve as flagship centers of civic engagement in urban settings.  We will also check in on the current status of our own quest for a new museum at William & Mary. Member sign up begins May 2. Non-member sign up begins May 9. Free to Members, W&M Students, Faculty, and Staff. Non-Members: $5 Reserve your spot or purchase tickets here.
