If you've never been to Cyprus and have always dreamed of visiting the fabled isle, now's your chance to see it without having to spend those precious vacation days. On Jan. 20, a new exhibit on ancient Cyprus opens in the Wallach Art Gallery, curated by Assistant Professor of Art History and Archeology Joanna Smith.
Visitors will find Wallach Art Gallery transformed to reflect to the Late Bronze Age (circa 1650 to 1200 B.C.) village of Phlamoudhi, on the north coast of Cyprus. The exhibition, Settlement and Sanctuary: Views from the Columbia University Excavations at Phlamoudhi, Cyprus, displays exciting finds from two archaeological sites for the first time. Photographs, large-scale plans, and ceramic, metallurgical and textile arts highlight the showing.
The exhibition is on display at the Wallach Art Gallery, 8 th Floor of Schermerhorn Hall, Jan. 20 through March 19 and will be accompanied by a symposium on Jan. 21 and workshops Jan. 20 and Jan. 22. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
