Goya Night

On November 21st Dr. Ortiz brought along some of her favorite Regis colleagues and students (not to mention her Hispanic Culture class) to the MFA to see the critically received "Goya: Order and Disorder" exhibit, which is the largest collection of the artist's works in North America in the past twenty five years. Dr. Ortiz was lucky enough to have seen both that original exhibit and this one. While the earlier exhibit focused on Goya's more naturalist portraits, this exhibit featured both his realist works as well as his more experimental, Romanticist paintings and sketches.

Me (above) giving a brief introduction to Goya before Dr. Ortiz's wonderful students present (below). As part of the work for their class, students attended the Goya exhibit, decorated, cooked, and presented at our "Goya Night" the week after Thanksgiving. Students focused on Goya's different styles, as well as how changes in his life influenced those styles.
