Black-Figure Lekythos, Greek, Attic, ca. 540–530 BC, ceramic, Tampa Museum of Art, Joseph Veach Noble Collection 1986.043

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. Organized by the Tampa Museum of Art









Presented in partnership with The Nebraska Medical Center's Health & Wellness Club, Art Encounters is free to all, except during special ticketed exhibitions. Reservations are not required.  For program details please contact Joslyn's Director of Adult Programs at (402) 661-3862 or sseverson@joslyn.org.
