The Hannibal Arts Council will present its sixth annual Art History Luncheon at noon Friday, Sept 28 at the Hannibal Arts Council, 105 S. Main St. The Art History Luncheon is a special event designed to fit into a workday lunch hour and take that time to educate, enrich and engage through focusing on a famous painter, painting or art period.

The artist featured in this year’s luncheon is Gustav Klimt. HAC Executive Director Michael Gaines will present a timeline biography, highlight select paintings by Klimt and discuss the historical background of the Austrian symbolist painter and prominent member of the Vienna Secession movement.

The luncheon menu was selected by the HAC Program Committee to compliment the program’s focus on Klimt and Vienna. Being an Austrian painter, the committee has chosen an appropriate lunch of bratwurst and sauerkraut, roasted potatoes, spiced red cabbage, hearty bread and apple cake. Water, tea or wine will be served with the meal.

Cost for the program and luncheon is $25 for the general public and $20 for HAC supporters. Seating is limited. Reservations are required by Monday, Sept. 24 by contacting the Hannibal Arts Council at 573-221-6545 or reservations@hannibalarts.com.
