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 Museum of Fine Arts the large majority of the objects included in the special exhibition. Join us for this special lecture, as well as cookies and coffee, in our Bayview Room.

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