April 8            Celebrating 2017, the Year of  Szt. László of Hungary, presented by Fr. András Mezei, Administrator, St. Emeric Church, Cleveland, Ohio.

Hungary’s Secretary of State declared 2017 as the year of Szt. László of Hungary. This presentation will outline the achievements of this King of Hungary who reigned from 1077 – 1095 and was canonized in the Roman Catholic Church on June 27, 1192 by Pope Celestine III. Legends depict him as a pious knight-king and call him “the incarnation of the late-medieval Hungarian ideal of chivalry.” He is a popular saint in Hungary and neighboring nations, where many churches are dedicated to him.

May 13            Hungarian Artists in the Stream of Art History, presented by George Kozmon. George Kozmon is an internationally collected artist whose monumental paintings have been widely exhibited and critically acclaimed.

This talk will discuss the works of art in The Sebő Collection of Paintings, Porcelain and Textiles through the lens of a renowned Hungarian-American artist, placing these most exquisite pieces into the context of art history.  The talk will primarily focus on painting, and provide a brief discussion and analysis of the objects of art in the exhibition, considering them in the broader context of contemporaneous art movements of the time period, stylistic features, i.e. genre, design, format, and technical problem-solving will also be examined.

All lectures and programs are held at the Hungarian Heritage Museum, in The Galleria, Lower Level, Downtown Cleveland, with coffee and refreshments following the presentation.

On these days the Museum is open from 1-4 p.m.

$5 parking is available in the Galleria underground garage.
