Event description

Description

In celebration of Emory’s Founders Week and the museum’s centennial, University Historian Gary Hauk traces the history of the Michael C. Carlos Museum. Its nomadic wanderings have taken it from Seney Hall at Oxford to its current home designed by architect Michael Graves on Emory’s historic Quadrangle. From a cabinet of curiosities featuring stuffed birds and a piece of rock salt “reported to be part of Lot’s wife,” the museum has developed into the finest collection of antiquities in the Southeast.

This lecture is cosponsored by the Emory Libraries and held in conjunction with the exhibition The Carlos as Catalyst: The Transformation of the Museum at Emory, on view at Emory’s Rose Library through May 31. Reception to follow.

Parking available in Fishburne Parking Deck on the Emory University campus.
