Time

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.

Like J.P. Morgan and other members of the Gilded Age elite, Henry Walters was an “omnivorous” collector of art. To mark the opening of From Rye to Raphael: The Walters Story, Walters curator Jo Briggs, Christine Nelson, Drue Heinz Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts at the Morgan Library and Museum, and John Ott, associate professor at James Madison University consider how discriminating purchasing cemented social relationships at the turn of the century.
