posted on Oct. 5: Curator discusses Greek and Roman fingerprints


What did the ancient Greeks and Romans not give us? Their fingerprints
can be found globally, including the Olympic games, democracy and
architecture to name a few.

Martha Kelleher, assistant curator of European art at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), will take participants on a journey through the pages of history during her lecture on Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the McMaster Museum of Art.

Participants will learn more about the context and influence of these
two great civilizations when Kelleher talks about Antiquity Revisited:The 19th Century. The historical pieces in this exhibition at the Museum are drawn from the holdings of the AGO, and feature works by 19th-century artists who were inspired by the ancient Greeks and Romans.

The display runs until Oct. 22.
