The Arch of Titus: From Jerusalem to Rome and Back
Tue. November 14th, 2017, 6:00 pm-7:00 pm
Maltz Performing Arts Center, 1855 Ansel Road, Cleveland, OH 44106
The Department of Art History and Art, College of Arts and Sciences, CWRU, is pleased to present a lecture by Professor Steven Fine. In conjunction with his new exhibition at Yeshiva University Museum, Dr. Fine will talk to us about the Arch of Titus and Jewish history in the Roman period. “Stretching from the Roman era to the present, The Arch of Titus – from Jerusalem to Rome, and Back” explores the image and symbolism of the Arch from various vantage points – from emperors and popes to Jews and Christians, who re-interpreted the meaning of the Arch in modern times. Dr. Fine will also show rare artifacts to illuminate the monument’s vibrant history, as the Arch itself went from monumentalizing victory to falling into ruination and, eventually, to being restored in the modern era. Free and open to the public.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Art History and Art, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities.
