September 8 2004 Art Appreciation Newsletter


This summer's Olympics in Athens, Greece brings attention to an ancient culture. The architecture of the Parthenon is breathtaking. So are sculptures from the temples, including the Elgin marbles. In the early 19th century, Lord Elgin removed Parthenon marbles under what was said to be "controversial circumstances." For this year's Olympics, efforts were made to ask the British musuem to lend its marbles. The best that the Greeks could hope for was a temporary exhibition space near the New Acropolis Musuem's entrance, displaying highlights from the collection, including samples of the Parthenon marbles. A cyber solution was posed to the marbles problem. Since European museums own some Parthenon parts, why not reunite scattered elements in a computer generated model? Sounds like something everyone could agree on. Buy Posters Here From AllPosters.com
