The Heritage Corridor Community Associates will go to the Chicago Art Institute on Jan. 22.
Covering more than 4,000 years of artistic production across the ancient Mediterranean world, the Mary and Michael Jaharis Galleries of Greek, Roman and Byzantine Art contain a wide array of objects that tell the story of everyday life, objects dedicated to the gods and objects of art used in imperial ceremonies. We explore the works of art that reveal the mystery, beauty, adornment, devotion, seduction and power of life in the ancient Mediterranean. As research associate in the Department of Ancient and Byzantine Art, Terrah Walkup was part of the team responsible for the installation of the Jaharis Galleries, will be the speaker. Lunch will be at the Art Institute and the afternoon will be a self-guided tour of the Jaharis Galleries.
To attend you must be a Heritage Corridor member. This group offers series of interesting trips, lectures and social opportunities with like-minded people in your community. For information, call Susan Meehan at 815-524-3396.
