We will conclude the book 1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus (2006) by Charles C. Mann. This has been a really great book. I can think of one-thousand-four-hundred-and-ninety-one reasons you should read it and then come and share your views. I will be glad to recount them all on the 21st.


The Power of Landscape Art

Robert Brusic
Saturday, February 23, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:30am

Minnesota Public Radio frequently mentions the power of classical music. Bob Brusic will adapt this theme and talk about The Power of Landscape Art.  He will discuss the various ways in which the genre of landscape painting has been used to communicate ideas and evoke emotions. The talk will be illustrated.
Brusic has been a docent at MIA for ten years. Previously he was the pastor at Luther Seminary. He has degrees from Dartmouth and Harvard and is a longtime member of MISF.
