Description
Join Epy Pengelly, Armiger for a virtual visit to the Uffizi Gallery. Built in the 16th century for Cosimo I de'Medici, it was originally full of offices for the Florentine magistrates with just the top floor being art galleries for the family and their guests. Over time, the galleries took over more and more space, displaying artwork owned by the family that ranges from Classical statuary to Renaissance paintings. The Uffizi Gallery is also a stunning piece of artwork itself, so attendees are in for a visual treat! Epy is a museum professional that specializes in museum lighting and exhibition design, so expect some behind-the-scenes practical considerations for the museum, as well as some in depth information on highlighted objects. This class will not be recorded.
