In the video below, Dr. Gary Radke offers interesting facts and background on Michelangelo in anticipation of SAM’s new exhibit Michaelangelo Public and Private, opening tomorrow. Radke is Deans Professor of the Humanities at Syracuse University and curatorial adviser for the exhibit:
The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore presents Heroes: Mortals and Myths in Ancient Greece. Marquand produced the catalog for the exhibit, arranged around four main figures: hero-god Herakles; traveler Odysseus; fiery warrior Achilles; and stunning Helen.
The show features a strong educational component and promises to be compelling for individuals and families. Before you go, be sure to try the Which Mythological Figure are You? quiz.
Opens October 11, free to the public. Click here for information on Heroes programs and special events.
