The Story of Art | Art Until Rome: 2700 B.C.-A.D. 300
The Story of Art series focuses on the story of art history, one that is continually being retold as we discover new things and look afresh at the familiar. Join MFA curators on a journey to learn more about our collection, contextualized with other objects from around the world, as we take a grand tour through the story of art.
Art Until Rome: 2700 B.C.–A.D. 300 is presented by Senior Curator of Ancient Art Dr. Michael Bennett.
