Wolf's work will also be featured in the upcoming Stilleven: Contemporary Still Life exhibition opening Sept. 12 and continuing through Dec. 20 at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

Event Image Lecture | The Present Acropolis: Classical Antiquity in Modern-Day Athens |
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

*WU Campus - Law School

Dr. Eleana Yalouri, Department of Social Anthropology, Panteion University, Athens

The classical past seems to occupy both the subterranean and the open spaces of Athens and interacts with the modern day capital. Generations of Greeks have been weaned in the narrative of a golden national past, but when held up against contemporary urban life, this legacy often proves tyrannical. 

How do Greeks cope with their ancient heritage, its local, national and international features? Which pasts do they chose to remember and which ones to forget? And, ultimately, why does the past matter? 

These are some of the questions we will discuss by example of the Athenian Acropolis, the classical Greek monument which has captured the imaginations of writers and travelers for centuries and still draws crowds from all over the world.

This lecture is offered in conjunction with the Hallie Ford Museum of Art exhibition An Archaeologist's Eye: The Parthenon Drawings of Katherine A. Schwab, opening November 7 and continuing through January 31, 2016 in the Study Gallery and Print Study Center.
