Dr. J. Michael Padgett, Curator of Ancient Art at the Princeton University Art Museum, will focus on ancient Greek art, including objects from the MFA’s collection. This will be a homecoming of sorts for Dr. Padgett, as he was Curator of Classical Art at the Tampa Museum of Art from 1990-1992, immediately before moving to Princeton.
Dr. Padgett has also served as a curatorial assistant at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (1983-1984) and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (1986-1990). He holds his B.A. from the University of Kentucky, his M.A. from the University of Minnesota, and his Ph.D. from Harvard University. He is an expert on Attic vase-painting.
This is the second lecture in a series that features some of the world’s foremost art historians, curators, and collectors. All lectures begin at 6:30 p.m. These lectures are free with Museum admission for the general public.
