Highly Descriptive Presentation: Roman Art at the Legion of Honor
Statue of Asklepios, Hellenistic period, 2nd century BC. Museum purchase, United Hellenic American Congress and the William H. Noble Bequest Fund
This highly descriptive program, designed for those who are visually impaired, is open to all audiences and everyone is invited to attend.
The saying attributed to Julius Caesar, 'Veni Vidi Vici,' translates to, “I came, I saw, I conquered.” Did the Roman culture succeed? Can ancient Rome be witnessed in San Francisco today? Join a conversation surrounding ancient Roman artworks from the Legion of Honor to address these questions. Each work of art will be described in extensive detail and the presentation will touch on wine, medicine, funeral rituals, military emblems, ceremomial swords, and architecture. In anticipation of the upcoming special exhibition Last Supper in Pompeii: From the Table to the Grave, we will focus on artworks and stories about Roman art and culture from past to present.
This event is free and available to the public upon registration.
