The Art of Pandemics: Ancient Athens to Modern Manhattan

The year 2020 has been impacted in so many ways by the Covid 19 pandemic. Throughout history, plagues in one form or another have shattered our communities. With every epidemic people have responded artistically; whether in the service of soliciting divine intervention, or as a form of propaganda or in the service of answering purely practical problems.

Join me to take a look at how artists and their art have been influenced by pandemics from ancient Athens to modern Manhattan.


Fiona Garland earned her MA in Art History from the Courtauld Institute in London, specializing in 16th Century Venetian art. Teaching in a lively and engaging style, she has guided tours of art museums and churches across Europe and North America. Ms. Garland is a member of the Advisory Committee for the Fairfield University Art Museum.
