Coffee Talks with Nan Colton: Clio, The Muse of History – Ancient Mythology

Connect with the arts through monthly performances that give voice and embodiment to the two-dimensional. Nan Colton invites us to meet an artist or historical figure in a 30-minute presentation filmed live from the MFA, and presented via Zoom. Grab a cup of coffee and a morning snack, and enjoy from home!

This month’s program is entitled:  Clio, The Muse of History – Ancient Mythology

Clio, The Muse of History, brings to life the literary tradition of the Ancient Greeks;  teeming with myths, legends, and fables that are part of the western modern world’s present legacy.  We root some of our current philosophies on the imaginations of those ancient deep thinkers who peered deeply into the world around them and then conjured explanatory stories. Here, Clio continues the ancient tradition of telling the stories found deep within the museum’s renowned collection of antiquities.
