A Guest Lecturer Sheds Light on Botero’s Dark Humor




As you wander through the Botero exhibit, you will be confronted with scenes ranging from exuberant parties and cross-dressing to domestic melodrama and violent conflict.  To make sense of these contradictions, come see a lecture on the political history of Latin America given by Mike LaRosa, Associate Professor of History at Rhodes College.  A question-and-answer period will follow, so you can enhance your understanding of Botero’s world.


You really could make an afternoon of the whole thing — come in to see the exhibition, grab a quick bite at the Brushmark, and enjoy an informative (but informal) educational experience.


The lecture is free with museum admission on Thursday, November 6 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. The number of seats is limited, so please call us at 544-6215 to save your spot.
