About the event
"Knights in Armor showcases stunning examples of European arms and armor from the renowned collection of the Museo Stibbert in Florence, Italy. More than one hundred rare objects—including full suits of armor, mounted equestrian figures, helmets, swords, and other weaponry—tell the tale of the European knight from the Middle Ages and Renaissance through to the medieval revival of the nineteenth century. The exhibition explains the historical and functional contexts of arms and armor of this period while also highlighting the undeniable beauty and artistic appeal of these works.
An epic fantasy adventure, The Green Knight tells the story of Gawain, King Arthur’s feckless and headstrong nephew, who irresolutely embarks on a quest to meet the challenge of the eponymous Green Knight, a tree-like giant and tester of men. Gawain contends with magic, ghosts, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character as he navigates the perilous path towards honor and knighthood. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery (A Ghost Story) comes a fresh and bold spin on a timeless Arthurian legend."
