Opening Lecture
Saturday, October 21, 6 PM

In the 15th century, Renaissance master artist Lorenzo Ghiberti innovated a new, humanistic form of sculpture in his Gates of Paradise—storied gilt bronze panels he created for the east portal of the Baptistery at the Florence Cathedral. Nearly 500 years later, artist Hiroshi Sugimoto has memorialized Ghiberti's landmark achievement in a new series of monumental monochrome silver gelatin photographs, produced to scale. Join Monsignor Timothy Verdon, Ph.D., Canon of the Florence Cathedral and Director of the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, for an inaugural lecture focusing on the legacy of Ghiberti's Gates, and Sugimoto's novel interpretation.

This lecture is the third in a three-part series organized in conjunction with Hiroshi Sugimoto: Gates of Paradise
