Columbia’s Low Library will house an exhibition on Roman Art, curated and designed by Professors Francesco de Angelis, Marco Maiuro, and their students: “Archaeology and the City: The Olcott Collection, from Rome to Columbia.” The exhibition is accompanied by a conference on “Archaeology and the City: A Conference on Ancient Rome in New York”, March 2-4, sponsored by the Department of Art History and the Center for the Ancient Mediterranean. The exhibition opens at 5 pm, March 2, 2012 and will run through Commencement.
Many students currently or formerly in Columbia’s Classical Studies M.A. and Ph.D. Program are participating in the exhibition project, together with Ph.D. students from Art History and History, Classics’ Postbaccalaureat program, Columbia College and Columbia’s School of General Studies, the graduate program of Columbia’s School of Architecture, and NYU’s IFA Ph.D. program. These are images of some of the stunning objects that will be on display, and of some of the students at work, with Professor Katja Vogt visiting.
If you have a chance, please come and visit the exhibition at Low Library, starting March 2, 2012.
