Cupid, or Eros as the Greeks knew him, was the ancient Roman god of love who had the power to arouse passion in his fellow immortals and humans alike. Even among the Greeks and Romans, however, Cupid soon became linked most often with romantic love, and his image changed from slender youth to plump infant. Today, Cupid is most often depicted as a playful arrow-wielding cherub associated with Valentine’s Day. In this talk we will explore the transformation of Cupid’s depiction from formidable figure to impish child in art and popular culture.

Pam Sachant has a Ph.D. in Art History from the University of Delaware and was Head of the Department of Visual Arts at the University of North Georgia. An experienced lecturer, Sachant has presented at several conferences, universities, and museums, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. As an academic writer, Sachant is featured in the University Press of North Georgia and in art history publications including the Archives of American Art Journal.

Please be aware that this presentation will include art pieces that depict nudity.
