Mastering the Masters: The Classical Tradition.

Weatherspoon Art Museum. Corner of Spring

Classicism are terms used in art history to describe a

work’s style, motifs, or subject matter. The terms can

refer specifically to the artistic traditions of ancient

Greece and Rome or have broader connotations and

denote the influence of these early civilizations on

subsequent periods of art. It is this latter meaning

which is explored in this focused exhibition drawn

from the museum’s permanent collection. As visitors

to the exhibition will see, the approach has offered an

almost endless variety of models and ideas to artists

of all ages. Free. For more information call 334-5770 or
