Event Details

Behold the beauty of Rome -- a Goddess is ready for a night out in the Second Century A.D., when Rome ruled the West. Now she lives in Chicago’s Art Institute, waiting to greet you with big brown eyes and a serene smile, her beauty undimmed by the passage of time.

 

And she’s not alone. The beauty of Roman civilization is all around her, in many forms. Paintings, busts, sculpture, and much more reside in the Institute’s recently renovated Ancient Art Galleries.

 

University of Chicago art historian Joana Konova knows them well, and would like to introduce them to you. Join Joana for an evening of exploration and discovery as she guides you on an entertaining tour of selected works from the Art Institute’s Roman collections. Joana will discuss the history of each work, the method of its creation, what it meant to the people of Rome--and what it means to us.

 

Guests are invited to some informal discussion of ancient Rome (not included) at the delightful Tuscan restaurant Coco Pazzo on 300 W Hubbard after the tour.
