Festina Lente on view through July 7
“Festina Lente: Conserving Antiquity” is on view through Sunday, July 7. Installed with the notion of “open storage” in mind, the exhibition offers an unconventional behind-the-scenes opportunity to survey the Greek and Roman holdings in the Davis Museum’s permanent collections. Focused on collecting, conservation, and stewardship, the exhibition invites new research and scholarship regarding a range of objects—some, deeply beloved long-time fixtures in the Davis galleries, and others, hidden from view for decades.
