"But Why Is He Naked?" The unlikely origin of David, the world's greatest statue, with Gary Fagin

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States (map)

One of the world’s most famous works of art, Michelangelo’s "David" is not as straightforward as it might seem. Fagin gives the fascinating and surprising backstory of this monumental masterpiece – why it was commissioned, how it was carved, and its complicated life after completion.  If you haven't made the trek to Florence to see the real thing, this lecture might put you on the next plane! 

Gary Fagin is the co-Founder and Artistic Director of nationally renowned Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, where he also leads the Faigin Still Life Painting atelier and lectures on Perspective and Portraiture. In addition, based on his expertise in Western art history, for over two decades Faigin has led art tours to the cultural capitols of the U.S. and Europe. Through a Gage/Town Hall partnership, Faigin currently hosts televised “Art Talks” with leading American artists, as well as art panels on “hot button” art topics.
