Greek Art In San Diego

San Diego Museum of Art presents now an exhibition based on ancient Greece and its artworks. The exhibition contains the characters from the ancient myths, such as Helen and Paris of Troy, Hector and Achilles, Herakles, Amazons, Odysseus and many others.
Mortals and Myths of Ancient Greece is a showcase depicting the characters and legends from myths such as the Iliad and the Odyssey. Depicting the eroticism, mayhem and violence of the era, the works are borrowed from some of the finest museums in the world.
This exhibition was organized by the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore and focuses on the mythology from the ancient Greece.The exhibition catalog and museum support materials focus on the mythic imagery and the purposes that the objects were used for. The exhibition also has some handsome marble reliefs, small scale sculpture, and jewelry.
As there is no San Diego museum that permanently houses artworks from the ancient Greek period, this exhibition is a rare opportunity to view this type of artwork locally.
