Join Art Historian Elaine Ruffolo for The History of Venice and the Art of Titian. By the opening of the 15th century, Venice had become the leading maritime power in the Mediterranean and possibly the wealthiest city in Europe. Venice’s holdings on the Italian mainland began to turn a profit, and in turn, public patronage of the arts was on the rise. At the same time, the Venetian school of painting led by the great Tiziano Vecelli (Titian) was reaching the height of its power and influence, a position that it maintained until the last years of the 16th century. In a society as conscious of tradition as Venice, the success of artists depended on their ability to evoke and blend with the glorious past.

Roberto Jamora is a Filipino-American Richmond-based artist and educator. He holds an MFA from Purchase College, State University of New York, and a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. The Asian Centennial committee chose Jamora to be the inaugural Asian Centennial Distinguished Fine Arts Fellow at William & Mary. During this talk, Jamora will present his vision for artistically expressing the Asian Pacific Middle Eastern experience and history at William & Mary. His recent work includes The Sound of Fate Knocking at the Door 2, which the Muscarelle Museum of Art acquired in honor of the Asian Centennial. The painting is part of a series called An Inventory of Traces. Jamora says that the purpose of the series is to “commit important events in my life to memory via painting. I mine color from memory, photos, interviews, and artifacts from my family.”

This Muscarelle Explorations: The Voice of the Artist lecture is co-sponsored by the Asian Centennial Committee and the Muscarelle Museum of Art.

This series is made possible by our partner, The Williamsburg Landing.

Join us for a trip to the late 1960s and the 1970s, a time when the best-selling book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee took the nation by storm, Andy Warhol and Pop Art redefined the art market, Bob Dylan's music topped the charts, and the American Indian Movement was born. This period and movement shaped many of the artists featured in our current exhibition Shared Ideologies. Exhibition curator Danielle Moretti-Langholtz will provide context and explain how they impacted Native American art in this engaging lecture.

The Muscarelle is thrilled to welcome Chemehuevi artist Cara Romero to campus. Romero will dive into her artistic process and recent projects. Romero is a technically brilliant photographer and marries that skill with her ability to convey an indigenous perspective on issues of Native representation and identity. Romero says "I am deeply committed to making work that addresses Native American social issues and changes the way people perceive us in contemporary society. My style offers viewers sometimes serious and sometimes playful social commentary on pressing social issues." Romero's works are widely sought by museums and the Muscarelle is lucky to have three of her photographs, TV Indians, Oil Boom, and Water Memory. All three are on view in Shared Ideologies.

Diego Romero is a Cochiti Pueblo potter and printmaker based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Romero’s artistic mission is to transcend his Native American heritage by combining traditional materials, techniques, and forms of ancient Mimbres, Anasazi, and Greek pottery with comic book inspired imagery, to talk about contemporary issues. His lively and thought-provoking work has reached across the United States and Europe and resides in collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the British Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The Muscarelle plans to acquire a work by Romero to commemorate his visit.
