Exciting Discoveries in Art History with Mallory Mortillaro – On Zoom

Thursday, May 4, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

The Camden Public Library is excited to welcome back Mallory Mortillaro on Thursday, May 4 at 6:30 PM for another Zoom program about thrilling art history discoveries.

Who doesn’t love learning about a priceless painting found in an attic? Or a sculpture sitting for decades in a public garden, only to be found out as an Italian treasure?  After Mallory Mortillaro found herself in the middle of her own art history discovery when she uncovered the provenance of a Rodin sculpture sitting in a New Jersey town hall, she learned just how many times this has happened before.  This lecture explores the stories of several different important and valuable works of art that have been rediscovered in unexpected places.  We will learn about each piece and artist, and how the piece got to be lost, and then found.

This program will take place on Zoom. Click here to register: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Fq4cRKmKQzO8QwO4raUgLg

Mallory Mortillaro is an art historian and educator.  She has ten years of teaching experience, and has worked on various art research projects for museums and organizations in the New York metropolitan area.  She studied at Drew University.  Mallory resides in New Jersey with her husband.
