Lost to Time: Ancient Greek Bronzes, a Gallery Conversation

Date
Thursday, May 2, 2013
Time
06:15 PM–07:30 PM
Lost to Time: Ancient Greek Bronzes, a Gallery Conversation

FREE
No registration required
Meet at Centre St. Lobby at 6:15 p.m.

Although today we think of gleaming white marble and red-and-black pottery when we picture ancient Greek art, bronze was a favored material for everything from sculpture to armor, weapons, vases, mirrors, jewelry, athletic equipment, weights, musical instruments and containers of all kinds. Join us for a gallery talk that explores the wide variety of ancient uses for bronze with Dr. Amy Sowder Koch, Towson University Assistant Professor of Art History, and explore the Greek collections from a new perspective.

Please meet at 6:15 p.m. in the Centre Street Lobby. The group will then proceed to the Ancient Greek Galleries.
