Non-Fiction Book Club to discuss Michelangelo and Sistine ceiling
Schreiner University’s Non-Fiction Book Club will meet at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 1, in the Scarle-Philips Room at William Logan Library on the university campus to discuss Ross King’s “Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling.”
Michelangelo, who was best known as a sculptor rather than a painter, worked more than four years on the frescoes covering the vaulted ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Apostolic Palace in Vatican City. He succeeded in creating one of the world’s most sublime works of art, despite arguments with Pope Julius II and less than ideal working conditions.
The Non-Fiction Book Club is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Center for Innovative learning at Schreiner and is free and open to the public. For more information about CIL programming, visit the Web site at www.schreiner.edu/academics/cil.
