Art in Roman Life

Ongoing

An exhibition of more than 50 works, including 21 Roman portrait busts donated to the CRMA by Tom and Nan Riley in 1996, this installation is a condensed version of the CRMA’s immensely popular Art in Roman Life: Villa to Grave exhibition. From coins to glass vessels to ceramic lamps to marble sculptures, this exhibition reveals more than 600 years of artistic production, which comprised daily life in Rome from the 1st century B.C. through the fall of the Roman Empire.
