FASHION & MASTERS

Beyond Satin and Lace: Jewelry in the Context of Early Modern Fashion, 1600-1790.

 

Ornament a la Mode: Jewelry in the Context of Early Modern Fashion, 1600-1775. This lecture will address the fashions of the late Renaissance through the mid-Georgian eras, and how the jewelry of these eras was incorporated into the sumptuous costumes of the aristocratic classes. We will discuss how form followed fashion, both in costume and jewelry. This lecture will be followed by a "hands-on" session, with jewelry of the 17th and 18th centuries available for examination.

Virtual: San Diego 101 History of Our Region

Oct 13, 2020

Before it was the second-largest city in California, San Diego was a small Mexican pueblo. As the demographics quickly changed with statehood, however, the pueblo did not meet the needs of the new population. This presentation explores the geographical shift from Old Town to New Town – as well as the cultural and economic implications of the move.

The deserts of the American southwest contain one of the largest concentrations of geoglyphs outside of Peru’s Nazca Lines. These ancient Native American works of earthen art can be up to hundreds of feet long, and yet are often invisible until viewed from above. Before drones, GPS, or Google Maps, photographer Harry Casey began a unique archaeology project. Armed with nothing more than topographic maps, 35mm film cameras, and his beloved Piper J3 Cub aircraft, Casey spent thirty-five years documenting the region’s geoglyphs before natural erosion and human intervention could destroy these fragile sites.
