Lecture explores ancient Egypt's art

University of Oxford professor John Baines presents “Who Were the Artists in Ancient Egypt and Whom Did They Address?,” a free lecture sponsored by the art history department on Thursday, March 4 at 7 p.m. at the Carlos Museum.

Ancient Egyptian artworks were typically made by people of unknown name, for extremely small audiences. In this lecture Baines will discuss how the production of aesthetic artifacts, built spaces and events, many requiring vast resources, was a major social preoccupation.
