The realms of Poseidon encompassed virtually every aspect of life in the ancient Mediterranean world, from mythology and religious cult to daily activities. This exhibition explores each of these three domains, beginning with an impressive marble statue of the god. This remarkable Roman statue from the first century AD sets the stage for more than 100 additional works of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman art produced over more than a millennium, including stunning examples of black-figure and red-figure pottery; sculpture in terracotta, marble, and precious metal; and extraordinary examples of ancient glass, mosaics, carved gems, and coins.

In 1876, Louis Prang published a portfolio of fifteen chromolithographs after watercolors by the renowned painter Thomas Moran. Released to coincide with the nation’s centennial, this was the first illustrated publication about the West to be printed in color, helping to transform our understanding of the region from an alien wilderness to an integral part of our national identity.

Andy Warhol depicted the world with the volume turned up. Employing a seemingly endless palette of brilliant color, he challenged how we understand popular culture, politics, and consumer society. Andy Warhol in Living Color
examines how color impacts both subject and viewer, creating a dialogue between Warhol and nineteen contemporary artists who all use color to shape how we understand images.
