Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Join museum staff members for a closer look at ancient objects in the exhibition A World Within Reach: Greek and Roman Art from the Loeb Collection, as well as insights into the exhibition process. On view through May 7, 2023, A World Within Reach examines issues of power, desire, and wonder in antiquity and today by delving into small-scale ancient Greek and Roman art.

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Led by:
Amy Brauer, Curator of the Collection, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art
Matthew Rogan, Senior Curatorial Assistant for Special Exhibitions and Publications, Division of Asian and Mediterranean Art
