  1. Art Talk: Last Supper in Pompeii: From Table To Grave with Art Docent Marsha Holms

    October 8, 2020, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Larkspur Library's Zoom

    The Larkspur Library is proud to host an art talk with art docent Marha Holms on Pompeii. In AD 79, the Bay of Naples was rocked by the fiery eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii and nearby villages and farms were completely buried under pumice and hot ash, which killed thousands in the midst of their daily activities. Plaster casts of these bodies are a dramatic reminder of this disaster but, like a fly caught in amber, what was preserved gives us a picture of what life was like in a thriving Roman city. The exhibition brings us back into this world by focusing on everyday life and especially on food and drink. Along with the pots, pans, and other paraphernalia in the distribution, preparing, and serving food, this exhibition includes glorious works of art, which reveal the splendor and luxury loved by the wealthy Romans who called Pompeii their home. Presented by FAMSF Art Docent Marsha Holm. The event was made possible by the Friends of the Larkspur Library.
