Event Description

Sampling of images from the presentation

The art and architecture styles in any cemetery can visually describe its culture in various aspects. The shapes, inscriptions, and images indicate a society’s general outlook on death, prevailing religions or secularization, gender roles, and other social stratification such as race and ethnicity. This historical pictorial presentation looks at how funerary art and architecture show the values and trends of cemetery occupants and their contemporaneous society, from ancient faraway burials to modern local customs. Cost: $10 donation appreciated, $5 students and seniors. No reservations necessary.
