​The Art of Greece and Rome: A Virtual Tour of The Met

Joins us for a virtual tour of the Greek and Roman galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, led by Marisa Horowitz-Jaffe.

In this special presentation, we will learn a brief history of the Metropolitan Museum of Art before traveling back in time to the Greek acropolis, the Roman Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and the far-reaching empire and its emperors. You will be lead through time and see the shifting dynamics of Greek and Roman art, learn how the empire grew so strong and powerful, and be immersed in the ancient's romance of myths, mythological stories, and its vibrant characters. Fun questions such as why so many statues have noses broken off, and why everything has the same color, will be discussed as well.

Hosted on Zoom; free and open to all. Register here:
