At the Edge of Art History: When Art Becomes Me: Tattooing and Body Art from Ancient Times to the Present

At the Edge of Art History: When Art Becomes Me: Tattooing and Body Art from Ancient Times to the Present

In this lecture by Preston Metcalf, attendees learned that from what we know the origins of tattooing began with ancient body painting. From there, we learned that the first known tattooed man, Otzi, had multiple tattoos of lines and crosses in areas where he was diseased. Since that time, tattoos have exploded into a personal and cultural phenomenon that allows the wearer to display their personal, cultural and religious or other affiliations. Metcalf’s lecture series continues Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. with Capturing the Inner-Image: Self Portraiture in the Hands of Master. Drop in fee is $20.
