The Spiritual Dimensions of Matisse's Vision

CTS President Matthew Myer Boulton, will join Indianapolis Museum of Art Curator Rebecca Long for a special tour of the MATISSE, LIFE IN COLOR: MASTERWORKS FROM THE BALTIMORE MUSEUM OF ART exhibit exploring the spiritual dimensions of Matisse's Vision. Matisse had bold, intriguing views with respect to art and spirituality. He was particularly influenced by the arts of Byzantine Christianity and Islam and, in 1951 shortly before his death, he put his ideas in strong terms: “All art is worthy of the name religious.”  The tour occurs on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 6:45 pm.  The tour is free, but an exhibition ticket is required (tickets can be purchased here).  To join the tour, meet on Floor 2 of the Indianapolis Museum of Art at the top of the escalators.
