February 6 – May 1, 2016
Showcasing 19th and 20th century representations of mythological stories from the museum’s permanent collection, this exhibition explores the reasons why time and again artists have turned to the medieval and ancient past for subject matter. What happens when famous legends are retold? How can ancient myths relate to our modern lives? What is it that attracts modern audiences to ancient mythology?
