BYU Fine Arts and Entertainment Calendar for March 2005

March Arts Calendar

All month at the Museum of Art:

A major new exhibition titled "Art of the Ancient Mediterranean World: Egypt, Greece, Rome" will run until June 4, 2005, at the BYU Museum of Art. Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for students and $18 for families of up to six people. Admission is free for children 5 years old and younger and BYU students and employees. The 204 works displayed in the exhibition span a period from predynastic times in Egypt, 6000 years ago, to the Roman late imperial period, about A.D. 350. The exhibition is from the renowned collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Free exhibits now on display at the museum include:

  • "150 Years of American Painting," a permanent collection of paintings by renowned artists such as Frederic Edwin Church, Maynard Dixon, John Singer Sargent and many local Utah favorites including Mahonri Young. The exhibit will be displayed until June 2005.

  • "Christ Healing the Sick at Bethesda" by Carl Bloch, part of the museum's permanent collection, is on display in the main lobby area.

  • "Thoroughly Modern: The 'New Women' Art Students of Robert Henri" will be on view through Saturday, Aug. 27. This first-ever exhibition of the women art students of Robert Henri-widely regarded as the most important American art teacher of the era-will include paintings, prints, drawings, sculpture, textiles and furniture by 31 women artists who studied under Henri from the 1890s through the 1920s.

  • Every Monday night in the Museum of Art auditorium there will be storytelling for all ages. The Artful Tales program is free and gives two 35-minute presentations at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. The 7 p.m. presentation is geared toward families from the community and the 8 p.m. presentation is geared toward university students. The goal of this program is to help people develop a better connection with and understanding of Greek beliefs. Museum hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays; and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
