Mensa RG: Artist - Author Millicent Gappell Uses Myth Stories to Uncover True Character
SAN DIEGO, May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Millicent Gappell, noted post millennial glass artist and author of The Art of Myths & Music (Sutton Hart), was tapped to address Mensa's 2012 Regional Gathering in San Diego on May 27th, 2012.
Gappell delivers to Mensa conference attendees, with membership requiring an elite level IQ, an analytical tool and process she developed to use the personalities and traits of Roman and Greek gods and goddesses to gain valuable insights into one's true character.
The artist's presentation is based in part on her recent Amazon category-bestseller The Art of Myths and Music which uses Millicent Gappell's own art and music to present her unique take on ancient history's most powerful and instructional fictional icons: gods and goddesses of Roman and Greek mythology.
In the book and her lecture, author Gappell investigates timeless themes of love, betrayal, heroism, tragedy, intuition, manipulation, vindictiveness, compassion and power in the characters and actions of Athena, Diana, Venus, and other A-list deities. In this noteworthy presentation and with her signature style Millicent demonstrates the many parallels to modern day life and culture.
"I suspect members of this unique audience understand their individual positions in American culture in a deeper way than most," said Gappell, "And I hope they will embrace and use these unusual tools for self and cultural analysis."
