Drama in Ancient Greek Pottery with Bill Zewadski – Friends of Decorative Arts Lecture Series

Focusing on ancient Greek art associated with the theater and film stills of plays, this talk brings to life Classical theatrical performances. Plays were hugely popular in ancient Greece, as reflected by vessels and pieces of sculpture showing images of actors and performances, or the Greek god of the theater, Dionysius. A complement to the exhibition Ancient Theater and the Cinema, the talk with be given by Bill Zewadski, who loaned the MFA most of the objects included in the show.

Cost: $10, plus MFA admission; $10 for MFA members; and free for MFA Friends of Decorative Arts members.

  • Coffee and cookies will be catered by Olympia. Doors for the lecture do not open until 1:45 pm. Early attendees are invited to view the gallery.
  • There will be five Friends of Decorative Arts lectures this year, from November – April (but excluding January), taking place the second Tuesday of the months.
