Guided Tour “Poseidon and the Sea: Myth, Cult, and Daily Life”

Guided Tour “Poseidon and the Sea: Myth, Cult, and Daily Life”

Plan to arrive at the Joslyn 15 minutes before the tour. We will gather inside the Atrium, near the bench seating across from the reception desk. For those who want to spend more time with the art afterward, we will regroup at the Cafe Durham.



The realms of Poseidon encompassed virtually every aspect of life in the ancient Mediterranean world, from mythology and religious cult to daily activities. This exhibition explores each of these three domains, beginning with an impressive marble statue of the god. This remarkable Roman statue from the first century AD sets the stage for more than 100 additional works of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman art produced over more than a millennium, including stunning examples of black-figure and red-figure pottery; sculpture in terracotta, marble, and precious metal; and extraordinary examples of ancient glass, mosaics, carved gems, and coins.

Free admission for Joslyn members. $10 for general public adults; youth ages 17 and younger & college students with ID are free.

    I needed to move our tour by one day, to 1 pm on Sunday, Feb 9. I apologize for the change, but will arrange a second group tour later for those who can not attend Sunday.

    Right, the grant makes general admission free for 2014 but unfortunately the exhibit is ticketed as a special exhibition. My membership should get us a group discount -- as long as we have at least 10 attending.
