These staff-led tours of The Painters of Pompeii will provide conversation-based insights and close-looking experiences.
Who was the ancient Roman painter? How did the Romans decorate their homes? What sort of art did Romans prefer? What happened to the city of Pompeii when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 CE? How did the eruption preserve the incredible frescoes, or wall paintings, on display in The Painters of Pompeii? How did these paintings end up in a museum? During these insightful tours led by OKCMOA staff, guests will learn the answers to these questions and so much more as they are immersed in the art and culture of ancient Rome. $15 for members; $25 for non-members. Pre-registration recommended.
