My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art.
This week, SAM offers a tour of Michelangelo Public and Private with Daniele Di Lodovico, a freelance curator of contemporary art who is completing his PhD in art history at the University of Washington. Previously he studied at the University of Perugia with a focus on the Medieval and Renaissance periods. On this tour, Di Lodovico reads a selection of poems by Michelangelo while exploring the drawings from the exhibition to demonstrate how Michelangelo was an excellent prototype of the ideal man of the Renaissance.
Free with museum admission. Tour meets at the entrance to Michelangelo Public and Private: Drawings for the Sistine Chapel and Other Treasures from the Casa Buonarroti .
