Carlos Museum’s Veneralia 2006 to have Mediterranean theme
The Carlos Museum will hold its annual Veneralia gala benefit with art, music and fine dining, April 30 at 6 p.m. in the museum’s reception hall.

This year’s “Festival of Venus,” as Veneralia was known in ancient Rome, will honor Monique Brouillet Seefried, adjunct faculty consultant to the Carlos and current president of the International Baccalaureate Organization’s Council of Foundation; and her husband, Ferdinand Seefried, the Austrian consul general.
The event, whose Mediterranean theme is inspired by the upcoming exhibition, “In Stabiano: Exploring the Ancient Seaside Villas of the Roman Elite,” raises funds for the continuing excellence of the Carlos Museum.
Tickets are $350. For more information, contact Allison Dixon at 404-727-4291 or agdixon@emory.edu.
