Lunch and Learn: Alcohol, History and Religion


Thursday, January 6, 2011


12:15 PM–01:15 PM

The bread and wine of the Eucharist, which are meant to transform inside the body of the worshiper into the relics of Christ, are themselves the products of another transformation - alcoholic fermentation. This presentation by Graham Wimbrow investigates the roots of alcohol consumption by mankind, and traces the history of alcohol through religious worship.

Graham Wimbrowhas exhibited in group shows at Baltimore's Velocipede Bike Project, Area 405, Creative Alliance at the Patterson, and the Baltimore Museum of Industry. He is currently wrapping up a degree in Interdisciplinary Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Bring your light lunch to the Walters' Graham Auditorium (or purchase a lunch in the Walters new café) and enjoy lectures by curators, conservators, scholars and artists covering a range of topics related to the Walters exhibitions, collections and areas of interest. Lunch & Learn talks are free to the public.
