Frescoes have long been considered a lost art and one of the most noble mediums in which an artist can work. Created from humble organic ingredients, durable fresco murals are able to make strong impacts on communities.

Dr. Hubert Massey spoke on “Painting Heritage in Frescos.” She is a fresco artist inspired by Diego Rivera, pre-Columbian Mexican artists, as well as European masters. Dr. Hubert Massey’s distinctive fresco murals grace numerous landmarks in Detroit and other major cities in Michigan. Dr. Massey studied art at the University of London – Slade Institute of Fine Arts and has an honorary doctorate degree from Grand Valley State University.

The presentation was part of Lifelong Learning at Lourdes. It is open to all interested men and women, the only requirement for participation is an interest in ongoing learning.
