Iconography and Mythology

Western artists historically have drawn inspiration for their works from religious and mythological beliefs, to symbols of Christianity from Egypt, Greece and Rome. Contemporary artists have also been influenced by beliefs and symbols of Asian, Indian, Norse, Native American, African and other world cultures. These are the basis for movies, books, video games, animated stories and all forms of literature and art. Beverly Smith, Professor of Art History, will discuss some of these great stories and symbols and the works they inspired at the Rochester Hills Public Library on Thursday, March 8 at 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Registration is required and open to those with a Rochester Hills Public library card. To register go to the Events Calendar at www.rhpl.org or call 248-656-2900. The Rochester Hills Public Library is located in downtown Rochester two blocks east of Main Street off of University Drive on Olde Towne Road. For more information, please call 248-650-7124.
