This Just In!
Additions to the Collection  
from Pompeii to Today 

August 16-December 29, 2013

Celebrate the recent growth of Amherst College's art collection with more than 100 objects, most on view for the first time EVER at the Mead!

This Just In! Additions to the Collection from Pompeii to Today features an ancient Roman sarcophagus; prints by Dürer, Delacroix, and Hopper; contemporary art by Will Barnet, Vik Munez, and Michael Huey; and much, much more.


Save the date for the exhibition opening celebration on Friday, September 6, at 4:30 p.m. when we'll debut a new translation of the Latin inscription on the sarcophagus, a translation composed by former U.S. Poet Laureate - and Amherst College professor and alumnus - Richard Wilbur.

The exhibition and related events have been made possible with generous support from the Hall and Kate Peterson Fund; the David W. Mesker, Class of 1953, Fund; the Charles H. Morgan Memorial Fund; and the Friends of the Mead Art Museum.
