With joint forces this week from the Princeton University Art Museum, Princeton University Campus Collections, the Graphic Arts Collection, and Atelier Art Services, we are hanging paintings, sculpture, and mosaics in the newly renovated Firestone Library. We began today with this section of mosaic pavement with a male head, Roman Syria, Antioch-on-the-Orontes, ca. 400 A.D. from the Princeton University Art Museum. Gift of the Committee for the Excavation of Antioch to Princeton University (y1965-223)
It looks wonderful in the new Hellenic Studies Reading Room and we hope the students will be pleased when they return from their winter break. Thank you very much to the dozens of people who helped with this in the preparation stages and the execution today.
