The Academy Art Museum presents Dressed to Kill in Love and War: Splendor in the Ancient World, an exhibition featuring Roman, Greek and Hellenistic jewelry, helmets, vessels and other nearly 2000-year old and more recent objects. The Museum has worked closely with Guest Curator Sarah E. Cox, Ph.D. from New York to organize the exhibition. Dr. Cox fell in love with classical antiquity in high school and has devoted herself ever since to its study and appreciation.

The exhibition is made possible with loans from Fortuna Fine Arts, New York, member of IAATA, the International Association for Ancient, Asian and Tribal Art, an organization of specialist dealers, each with a high level of expertise in their field. Scholarship and connoisseurship are of the utmost importance and members contribute to catalogues and collaborate with museums to promote a greater understanding and appreciation of the people and cultures that produced them. The Academy Art Museum is the exclusive venue for this exhibition.

Exhibition Open Daily from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
