Virtual Members Noontime Talk: Object Biographies: A Book Six Years in the Making

Join Joseph N. Newland, Director of Publishing, for the story of the Menil’s first book on the Ancient Mediterranean collection. Initiated in 2014 by Curator Paul R. Davis, the Collection Analysis Collaborative brought together Houston students and specialists from across North America to trace the stories of unresearched objects, all of them “cold cases.” Then Covid-19 stretched out the production another full year.

Held every other 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 membership@menil.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.

Members Noontime Talks are generously supported by Frost Bank.
