The Spring 2013 exhibition schedule at the Davis Museum at Wellesley College kicks off Jan. 30 with the opening of Festina lente: Conserving Antiquity.
The exhibit features vases, vessels, portraits, standing figures, mosaics, coins, jewelry, and human and animal forms, according to the college, and gives a behind-the-scenes approach to Greek and roman art in the Davis permanent collections. It examines the difficulties that museums face in collecting antiquities, including issues of attribution, authenticity and trends in collecting over time, according to the college.
Other spring exhibits include “Glass Heart (bells for Sylvia Plath)” which is an interactive sound installation that opens on Feb. 20; and “Josef Albers: Geometries,” a selection of works by the Bauhaus artist, that opens on Feb. 26.
The Davis is located at 106 Central St. Admission is free and open to the public.
