Ancient Life on Greek Pottery
March 30 to June 1, 2015
Hours: 11 am– 4:30 pm daily
Class of 1912 Rare Book Room, Canaday Library
Bryn Mawr College
Curated by Robert Sutton, professor emeritus of Classical Studies at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, the exhibition reveals a complicated portrait of the people and the cultures associated with the objects on view. From personal items to ritual objects, from pristine examples to enigmatic fragments, and from intimate depictions to mythic expressions, Sutton's selections illustrate the breadth and scope of the College's collection of Greek pottery and offer insights into an ancient world that can seem remote and yet familiar.
