Recently, students from the DFPA presented “Sacred and Secular: An Exploration of Art and Music in the 11th-17th Century Italy” at Loyola University’s Museum of Art (LUMA). The LUC Chamber Choir prepared works by Landini, Dufay, Josquin, Palestrina, Monteverdi, Strozzi, and Gabrieli, accompanied on theorbo and Baroque guitar by guest artist, Brandon Acker.
Senior Art History major Kylah Clark, whose research interests include color in art, particularly in the Northern Renaissance, accompanied this interdisciplinary art and music program by presenting an original overview on key works in the collection spanning the Medieval to Baroque eras that highlighted major artistic developments across these time periods. Clark recently transferred to Loyola University Chicago from the University of Michigan and is currently developing her senior thesis.
