Registration and Collections have been working together to document 3 busts in the Museum’s artifact collection. Registration student Chelsea Gerber photographed the Portrait Bust of Antoninus Pius. This plaster cast bust is much larger than the more life-size busts on display in our Ancient Mediterranean exhibit, standing over 3.5 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Two Collections staff members were needed to safely lift and position it on to the table for photography.
All 3 busts are being loaned to the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago to be featured in their 2017 exhibition Classicisms.
