Think & Drink with The RISD Museum
August 17th, 6-8pm
Join Josh at the RISD Museum as he leads a tasting of a range of wines from European regions that were cultivated eons ago by Roman garrisons, and which are still producing wine today.
The tasting follows a gallery talk by Curator of Ancient Art Gina Borromeo, Conservator Ingrid Neuman and Mellon Intern Rachel Maynard, in which they'll share the results of research and scientific analysis on Roman-Egyptian panel paintings in the museum collection. Created between the first and third centuries, these paintings reveal both the continuity of Egyptian funerary traditions in the Roman province of Egypt as well as Roman penchant for naturalistic portraiture.
