Located at the Community Hall

Designed for: Adults (18+), Seniors

This exhibit will offer an astonishing look at Classical sculpture swathed in their original vibrant colors questioning the perception of an all-white “classical” ideal. Ancient sculpture and architecture from Greece and Rome will be revealed as intended—garishly colorful, richly ornamented, and full of life—along with original sculpture from the Near East, Egypt, Greece, and Rome against the backdrop of the Legion of Honor’s neoclassical building.
