The Art of Being Human: St. Cecilia in Poetry, Music, & Art

Join us for a joyous celebration with live music, poetry, art, and feasting at the Princeton University Art Museum

As part of this year’s Being Human Festival on the theme of ‘Discoveries and Secrets,’ the Collegium Institute, working in conjunction with the Princeton Humanities Council, the Carl Scmitt Foundation, and the Princeton University Art Museum, is proud to sponsor ‘The Art of Being Human: St. Cecilia in Poetry, Music, and Art.’

Centered on Edward Burne Jones’s luminous stained glass portrait of the pensive Saint Cecilia, this event will feature a screening, a poetry tour, a reception, a concert, and a roundtable conversation in an interdisciplinary effort to explore depictions of Saint Cecilia across different art forms from different centuries. 

Date: Thursday, Dec 12
Time: 2:30 pm-9:00pm
Location: Princeton University (McCormick 101 and Princeton University Art Museum)

This event is FREE and open to the public, but space in the Art Museum is limited, so attendance to the portions located there will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
