“Ancient Art for Sale: The Sculptor’s Workshop at Aphrodisias” Ancient Studies Lecture
April 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This year’s Ancient Studies guest lecturer is Julie Van Voorhis, Associate professor of Art History from IU Bloomington. In her lecture, titled “Ancient Art for Sale: The Sculptor’s Workshop at Aphrodisias”, Dr. Van Voorhis will be exploring sculptural finds in one ancient city in order to trace the production and markets of new and reused statues in the Roman Empire. Her talk will be based on both archaeological and literary evidence and personal archaeological experience. Accompanied by many images, it will connect such topics as artistic techniques of ancient sculptors, marketing and economy, social life, and politics.
