Walter Cahn @ The Morgan

At the Pearly Gates: Judgment, Heaven, and Hell in The New Yorker
Tuesday, April 21, 2009, 6:30 p.m.

In this richly illustrated lecture, Walter Cahn, Carnegie Professor of the History of Art (emeritus), Yale University, explores the imagery and views of the hereafter in our own time. Largely a product of the Middle Ages, these depictions surprisingly share the pages of The New Yorker with more familiar satires on the foibles of doctors, lawyers, and twenty-somethings, among other hilarious subjects. Presented in cooperation with the International Center of Medieval Art (ICMA). The exhibition On the Money: Cartoons for The New Yorker From the Melvin R. Seiden Collection will be open at 5:30 p.m. especially for lecture attendees.

Tickets: $15 for Non-Members; $10 for Morgan and ICMA Members

Free to students with valid ID. Reservations recommended (public_programs@themorgan.org)
