HAMMOND – Timothy Silva, Southeastern Louisiana University instructor of art history, will
deliver the next lecture of the free series "Let's Talk: Art."
Sponsored jointly by Southeastern's Department of Fine and Performing Arts, the Friends of Sims Library (FoSL) and the Hammond Regional Arts Center, the lecture is scheduled Wednesday, April 24, at 5 p.m. at the Hammond Regional Arts Center, 217 E. Thomas Street, across from the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts.
Silva will present "Caravaggio: A Cry in the Dark."
"As famous for the drama of his own life as much as his paintings, Caravaggio was a man of his time," Silva said. "The lecture will show how his revolution in the depiction of sacred events was both obedient to dictates of the church and a plea for redemption."
