Art Break|Museum of Art Fellows + CLAS 601 Students on "Myths Retold"

Wednesday, March 29, 2023 - 12:10 p.m. to 1 p.m.

Museum of Art

Join us in the Museum of Art for a conversation between Museum of Art Fellows and student researchers from CLAS 601: The Power of Myth, for a discussion interpreting myths portrayed in the current exhibition, Myths Retold: Paintings by Rosemarie Beck.

This program features Museum of Art Fellow Erin McKeen and CLAS 601: The Power of Myth Students Jim Kertis, Molly Gearhart, and Henry Huot.

Erin McKeen ('24) is a Studio Art major and a Chemistry Minor. Molly Gearhart ('25) is a dual History and Anthropology major with Minors in Classics and Studio Art. Jim Kertis is a graduation senior majoring in English.

Students in CLAS 601: Power of Myth wrote the explanatory exhibition labels to help viewers understand the nuances in Beck’s interpretation and the relevance of studying ancient myths and their literary sources today. This collaboration was made possible by Paul Robertson, Senior Lecturer, and R. Scott Smith, Department Chair, Classics, Humanities, and Italian Studies.

This exhibition is supported by the Friends of the Museum of Art with works of art lent by the Rosemarie Beck Foundation.
