Friday January 19, 2018 at 12:00 pm
Learn about the pre-Columbian objects presented in ART OF THE AMERICAS from Dr. Janet Esser, art historian and Professor Emerita of San Diego State University. Dr. Esser has lived in Peru and Mexico, has published books and articles in Mexico and the United States, and has presented many professional papers written extensively on ancient, ethnographic, contemporary and personal adornment. Dr. Esser is especially interested in the art of those ingenious people who occupied the Americas long before the arrival of Europeans as well as in the work of their descendants who, though often poor and dispossessed, continue to produce work rich in energy and intelligence.
