Art Docent Talk - Gods in Color - Polychromy in the Ancient World @ Alameda Free Library, Stafford Room | Alameda | California | United States

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2017
6:30 p.m. Stafford Room.

Docent Alfred Escoffier will show slides and discuss Gods in Color. This stunning show offers a look at classical sculpture swathed in its original vibrant colors, questioning the perception of an all – white “classical” ideal. Ancient sculpture and architecture are revealed as intended — garishly colorful, richly ornamented, and full of life.
This exhibit runs through January 7, 2018, California Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco.

Note: FAL-sponsored docent talks fill up quickly, so please arrive early.
