Veiled Dance

By Iris Fernandez

This week’s Object Histories Gallery Talk looked at the Statuette of a Veiled Dancing Woman! We hope it inspires you to break out your dancing shoes this weekend!

Stop by our galleries every Wednesday till May 29th to catch a 20-minute-in-depth discussion of one of the many beautiful objects on view in our exhibition Hymn to Apollo: The Ancient World and the Ballets Russes! Can’t make it? We will be sharing them to Instagram and Facebook Live most Wednesdays as well!
