Mary P. Gibbons | Emilie de Brigard
Join us to celebrate our honorees’ generosity toward caring for and preserving Pietro Francavilla’s 400-year-old Venus with Nymph and Satyr, the marble sculpture and fountain in Avery Court. This superb work of art is the most important example of Mannerist art in the US and a symbol of the museum’s commitment to art and culture in Hartford.
