Explore the less savory aspects of 17th century Rome with Mia’s Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings

Wednesday, February 17 11AM

Rachel McGarry

 We’re delighted to announce that Rachel McGarry, Mia’s Associate Curator of Prints and Drawings, will present a virtual talk on three recent acquisitions of Italian baroque paintings from the celebrated Barberini collection, which illuminate some of the less savory aspects of 17th century Rome.  

A Minnesota native, Rachel came to Mia in 2006. She studied at Colgate University and earned a MA and Ph.D. from NYU. She worked as an exhibition assistant and a research assistant at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and has taught art history at Stony Brook University and the University of Minnesota. In 2014 she completed a catalog of Mia’s drawing collection as a companion to a related exhibition, Master Drawings from the Minneapolis Institute of Art, that has toured the United States.

Rachel is a knowledgeable and engaged lecturer, so make your reservation soon by emailing friends@artsmia.org
