Exhibition Opening Celebration
Friday, September 6 at 4:30 p.m.
This Just In! Additions to the Collection from Pompeii to Today, featuring Amherst's newly acquired Roman sarcophagus.
Join us for the opening celebration of the special exhibition
At the event, we'll debut a new translation of the Latin poem inscribed on the sarcophagus, a translation composed by former U.S. Poet Laureate Richard Wilbur. We'll also tour other exhibition highlights (did we mention the exquisite Albrecht Dürer engraving and Vik Muniz photographs?) and conclude with a lively reception.
