Mysteries of the Sistine Chapel: The Hidden Messages of Michelangelo with Christine Maasdam
Fifty and Better Lecture Series

Zoom PST

How does an artist accept a reluctant assignment to complete a massive art project while maintaining his sense of artistic and personal integrity? If you are Michelangelo, raised in the House of the Medici and tutored by the leading intellects, you weave your understanding and knowledge of world philosophy, Humanism, Neoplatonism and Kabbalah into the process of producing the art itself. Michelangelo layered his dissatisfaction with the extravagances and personal gains of the papacy into "secret" hidden messages blended deep into the completed work of art, leaving a legacy that is truly unequaled. Please join us in this exploration of the artistic messages and meanings that Michelangelo strategically placed throughout the Sistine Chapel well over 500 years ago.

Politics on Broadway with Cary Ginell
Fifty and Better Lecture Series

Politics seems to be better suited for weighty dramas rather than light musical theatre, but the spectacle aspect of political campaigns is ideally suited for the expansive nature of Broadway musicals. Shows about politics range from Pulitzer Prize-winning productions to disastrous flops. In this class, we will talk about and play examples from many of Broadway’s most famous — and infamous — political musicals, including not only well-known shows like “Of Thee I Sing,” “Li’l Abner” and “Hamilton,” but a failed 1968 show called … (wait for it) “How to Steal An Election.”
