Free Fridays: May 17
DALLAS (CBS 11) – Tonight is Late Nights at The Dallas Museum of Art. Its theme is based on their new exhibition “Body Beautiful In Ancient Greece: Masterworks From The British Museum.” Curator from the British Museum, Dr. Ian Jenkins shared with CBS 11 the concept of the exhibition.
“The Greek Body Beautiful is an exploration of humanity in the ancient world. The Greeks were intensely interested in the human condition.”
The exhibition includes more than 120 objects exploring the human form. Iconic marble and bronze sculptures, vessels and jewelry are among the treasures — some dating back to the second millennium B.C. There’s even a model of ancient Olympia as it would have appeared around 100 B.C.
Tonight at the DMA you will be transported to Mount Olympus at Late Nights. The event is free and for the whole family. Explore the heroes and great myths of ancient Greece. There will be art activities, films, performances and tons of fun. You can even dress like your favorite Greek hero.
