Join us for a special presentation on the role of symbolism within art by Dr. Margaret Ann Zaho.
Margaret Ann Zaho is an Associate Professor of Art History in the School of Visual Arts and Design at the University of Central Florida and the faculty Director of the Art History in Italy abroad program. Her areas of specialization are the Italian Renaissance, particularly Florence and narrative fresco cycles, Roman Baroque, and Roman Imperial art and architecture. Her current research includes 15th century painted altar frontals and the confluence of digital technologies and art history.
Dr. Zaho’s interest in the fragile nature of art is a principal theme in her research and writing and a recurrent topic in her teaching. A noteworthy focus of her work is a concern for the general state of disrepair of much of the world’s art, the destruction of cultural property across the globe, and the social responsibility to ensure art’s existence as cultural heritage.
She is an enthusiastic traveler whose recent adventures have brought her to Scotland, Egypt, and the Cycladic island of Naxos.
