Tuesday, April 30 | 7 pm | Mercer Island Community & Event Center | $15

Equal parts artistic masterpiece and invaluable historical document, the Bayeux Tapestry vividly illustrates the story of the Norman Conquest.

This program is presented in partnership with the Mercer Island Sister City Association. Enjoy refreshments courtesy of MISCA following the talk.

Victorian Radicals: From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts and Crafts Movement
Saturday, May 11 | 2 pm | Mercer Island Library | FREE | Find more information here.

The rebellious Pre-Raphaelites connected art to everyday life and asserted the value of handmade objects during the burgeoning Industrial Age. Preview Victorian Radicals, which opens at the Seattle Art Museum on June 13 and features 145 paintings, textiles, decorative arts, and more, during this talk with art historian Tamara Moats. This program is presented in partnership with the Mercer Island Library.
