One of John and Dominique de Menil’s earliest purchases was a fragment of a Late Period Egyptian bronze head likely representing the falcon god Horus. Over the years, the couple collected hundreds of depictions of winged deities and allegorical figures. Paul R. Davis, Curator of Collections, will show how disparate cultures, geographies, and periods of art all share fascinating connections in the new exhibition Collection Close-Up: Of Heaven and Earth.
Held every Friday for a small group, Member Noontime Talks make exhibitions more intimate and reveal the collection as never before. To sign up, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.
