The Community Club of Garden City and Hempstead is pleased to present a lecture by Professor Dennis Raverty next Thursday, March 23rd at 1:30 at the Garden City Casino. 

The topic he will present is “The Humanist “Academia” – In the Garden of Lorenzo: The Magnificent.”  Wealthy banker and patron of the arts Lorenzo de’Medici gathered around him the foremost scholars, poets and artists of his day, formulating the first theories of artistic creation since ancient times, reviving the aesthetics of Plato.  But this pagan aesthetic was given a new interpretation through the incarnational theology of Christianity.

So, all you lovers of art, lovers of philosophy, lovers of poetry, lovers of the Renaissance and lovers of just a good afternoon out, please join us at the Casino on Thursday at 1:30 PM.  Guests are invited to attend for a $10 fee.
