Sacred Landscapes: Visions of Nature and Myth in Ancient Rome

Planning for an exhibition examining the depictions of landscapes in ancient Roman art and society.

Sacred Landscapes: Visions of Nature and Myth in Ancient Rome will be the first exhibition in the United States to explore the wealth of landscape imagery in ancient Roman art. The exhibition will deepen visitors' understanding of the nuanced meanings of landscapes. Our audiences' engagement with this striking genre will concentrate on three humanities themes: Landscapes and Roman Society, Patronage and Social Class, and Landscapes in Greek and Roman Art. Presented at the San Antonio Museum of Art from October 2020 to January 2021 and at a second venue thereafter, the exhibition will feature approximately 50 works that portray a countryside populated by rustic figures and rural shrines. The Museum has developed an Advisory Committee to assist in refining the presentation of the humanities themes through the exhibition narrative, catalogue and public programs. The Museum is requesting funding from the NEH to support a two-day workshop for the Advisory Committee in May or June 2018.
