Event Description
Docent Georgiana Torres will discuss a sculpture depicting St. James carrying a staff, a rosary, and a pilgrim's flask to disguise himself as a pilgrim returning from his own shrine. The conversation will examine the sculpture in relation to the pilgrimage trail and the Cathedral of Santiago de Campostela.

This popular series of informal gallery talks is designed for senior citizens but open to everyone.
