NOW ON DISPLAY IN THE GALLERIES:
Main Gallery, now through November 6, 2014: CLASSICAL PAST: Ancient Greece and Rome - on loan from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
Can you picture the glory and grandeur of ancient Greece and Rome? Athletes contended for victory, fame, and coveted prizes in the first Olympic Games. Trading ships loaded with olive oil, wine, grain, and other goods sailed the blue-green waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Poets, politicians, playwrights, philosophers, sculptors, architects, and artisans created a legacy that has inspired Western culture throughout the following millennia.
In this exhibition, the Classical World comes to life through photographic reproductions of objects chosen from the permanent collection of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The Classical World is explored, including the development of direct and representative democracy, natural resources, warfare, art, politics, and social structures.
Discover how many of our modern ideals regarding art, literature, and societal structures have been inspired by our ancient descendants by visiting the Colonial Center’s art galleries before November 6 and taking a look around this outstanding collection of photographic representations.
While touring the Ancient Greek and Roman exhibit in the mail gallery, be sure to stop by and view the Park View High School exhibit in the secondary gallery! Artworks from students are on display throughout the school year, and are rotated frequently. The amazing talent of these young students will surely surprise all who view their works.
The Colonial Center galleries are open for public viewing from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The galleries are also open to patrons during all Colonial Center performance events.
