Pomp and Circumstance

Journey to The Festive City with Associate Curator Emily Peters and discover how elaborate public festivals — carnivals, coronations, processions, races, and fireworks displays — punctuated daily life in European cities from the 16th to 18th centuries. Peters explains how rarely seen festival prints and books recorded these staggeringly expensive but fleeting events. Free with Museum admission.
