SMU’s Meadows Museum honors the 15th anniversary of University Distinguished Professor of Art History P. Gregory Warden’s groundbreaking archaeological excavation in Poggio Colla, Italy, with an exhibition dedicated to the ancestors of Rome: the Etruscans.

“From the Temple and the Tomb: Etruscan Treasures From Tuscany” is the most comprehensive exhibition of Etruscan art ever undertaken in the United States, with more than 400 objects spanning the 9th through 2nd centuries B.C. “New Light on the Etruscans: Fifteen Years of Excavation at Poggio Colla” will offer a look into the rare and dramatic finds from this important Etruscan site, including almost 100 objects from its sanctuary and from a habitation and center of ceramic production discovered in a field below its acropolis.

Both exhibitions will run from January 25 to May 17. Learn more at SMU’s Meadows Museum website.
