Who doesn’t enjoy a good old-fashioned game of chess with a glass of mead?
Tonight, the Walters Art Museum is hosting a game night with dozens of board games, chess included. The event is part of its programming series accompanying its new ongoing exhibition, “A Feast for the Senses: Art and Experience in Medieval Europe,” which showcases more than 100 late medieval works, including tapestries, metalwork and paintings.
Beyond just playing games, guests can learn about what ties some of our favorite tabletop activities to the Medieval era. Jason Corace, Sam Sheffield and their colleagues in the Maryland Institute College of Art’s game design program will be guiding guests through how these games evolved into their modern forms over the last five or six centuries.
Beer, wine and Charm City Meadworks mead will be available for purchase. The event begins at 5 p.m. with a 45-minute talk from Corace and Sheffield scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Click here to register for your free ticket.
