      EVENT DETAILS
      Lecture: Michelangelo and the Popes

      All Michelangelo wanted to be was a sculptor, but Pope Julius II had other ideas, as did Pope Leo X, Pope Clement VII, and Pope Paul III.  A long line of Popes with an eye for talent commissioned Michelangelo, often against his will, to create works of art and architecture which the artist accomplished so superbly that the works continue to draw people from around the world to see some 500 years later.  Come see and learn about Michelangelo’s magnificent works commissioned by Popes during his lifetime including the Sistine Chapel Ceiling, the statue of Moses, the Last Judgment and even St. Peter’s Basilica! We will discover how and why the Popes coaxed the great master into the fields of painting and architecture when all he wanted to do was carve marble.
