IDEA Ceramics Workshop & Presentation at the University of Wyoming

Guest scholar Lisa Boutin Vitela writes about her visit to the University of Wyoming on October 26, 2017:

“I helped lead discussion about Isabella d’Este’s patronage for an art history seminar about medieval and Renaissance women. I then gave a quick introduction about maiolica at a ceramics workshop where we painted maiolica tiles and plates. Finally, I gave my talk. Because Wyoming has a large studio arts program, many of the students and faculty were primarily interested in the making of the maiolica and Ester Mantovani’s project (which you can see in The Illustrated Credenza video). Students were also interested in exploring the IDEA website and databases. Everyone especially enjoyed the Virtual Studiolo preview video when I showed it in the seminar.”
