Member Noontime Talk: Out of Storage—Cypriot Art from the 1st Millennium BCE

Join Danielle Bennett, Curatorial Associate, for a close look at a votive sculptural head and a bird-shaped vessel from ancient Cyprus, two works that have never been on view at the Menil Collection. Through examining these objects firsthand, learn more about the cultural history of Cyprus as an island crossroad, see some of its distinctive cultural heritage, and discover how the ongoing investigations of the object biographies, or provenance, of these pieces have revealed new insights into their origins.

Held twice a month on Fridays 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.
