Owner of Metro Wines

Art and Caravaggio, "Bacchus"

Metro Wines and Curator Gary Byrd launch the first in a series of Art and Wine presentations blending art history with the history of wine. The first talk will focus on Caravaggio's painting, "Bacchus," circa 1595, Rome. We have all seen this painting with a young Bacchus offering a glass of wine to the viewer. Gary will discuss the artist, the subject and Metro Wines will add and offer what is probably in the glass! Join us Wednesday, May 29th from 6 to 8pm at Metro Wines.
