Caravaggio: Art and Life

A presentation by Dominic A. Aquila, Vice President of Academic Affairs at the University of St. Thomas and Henry Artis, painter, sculptor and installation artist

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center

"Having spent his brief, tragic and turbulent life painting miracles, he managed, in the process, to create one - the miracle of art, the miracle of the way in which some paint, a few brushes, a square of canvas, together with that most essential ingredient, genius, can produce something stronger than time and age, more powerful than death." - Francine Prose

During the event, we will go through the art and life of Caravaggio, one of the most important and mysterious painters of the human condition, showing why he is considered one of the greatest witnesses of the mystery of Christ.
