Insights: Dr. Louis Waldman “Becoming Michelangelo”

February 21, 2018 — Austin, TX

Join us on Wednesday, February 21 from 7pm-9pm for Insights with the esteemed Dr. Louis Waldman, Associate Professor of Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art History and the Director of the Graduate Portfolio in Museum Studies at the University of Texas at Austin.


Dr. Waldman’s Insights talk complements Flight & Fall: Charles Umlauf’s Dualities by focusing on Umlauf’s most significant artistic influence: Michelangelo. Join us at the UMLAUF to understand the uniqueness of Michelangelo’s artistic achievement. Along the way, our guest speaker will reference archetypes like those explored in the current UMLAUF exhibition as well as Michelangelo’s influence on sculptures in Flight & Fall.


In addition to winning numerous teaching awards over his career, Dr. Waldman has held research fellowships from the Kress Foundation, the Fulbright Foundation, and the Harvard Center for Italian Renaissance Studies at Villa I Tatti.
