The Allure of Ruins
Views of the Temple of Sibyl at Tivoli across Time
Temporary Exhibitions, Lobby
This installation explores views of ancient Roman ruins and the Italian countryside that have inspired artists for centuries, particularly the Temple of Sibyl at Tivoli. For both American and European artists, ruins such as those at Tivoli have always possessed a seemingly universal and timeless quality.
A Space for Dialogue, founded with support from the Class of 1948, is made possible with generous endowments from the Class of 1967, Bonnie and Richard Reiss Jr., Class of 1966, and Pamela J. Joyner, Class of 1979.
