EXHIBITION PREVIEW Leisure and Luxury in the Age of Nero: The Villas of Oplontis near Pompeii

  • Wednesday, February 1, 2017
  • Museum of Art
  • 10:30 AM
  • Join Barbara Kellum, Professor of Art for an exhibition preview of Leisure and Luxury in the Age of Nero: The Villas of Oplontis near Pompeii. Featuring works seen for the first time outside Italy, this groundbreaking exhibition centers on the ancient town of Oplontis on the Neapolitan coast, a site that was buried and preserved when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 CE. The exhibition focuses on two adjacent, spectacular Roman archaeological sites—one an enormous luxury villa (“Villa A”) that once sprawled along the coast of the Bay of Naples, the other a nearby commercial-residential complex (“Villa B”), where products from the region were exported.

    Free for members. Meet in the museum lobby. Space Limited. Reservations required.

    RSVP by January 31: SCMAmembers@smith.edu or 413.585.2777
