Want to check out the Michael C. Carlos Museum on the cheap? You’re in luck.
While you’re there, you can check out a mix of exhibitions at the Carlos Museum. Divine Felines: Cats of Ancient Egypt exhibition, on display through November 11, 2018, showcases the cats and lions (and even dogs and jackals) in ancient Egyptian mythology, kingship, and everyday life.
Be sure to browse the Carlos Museum’s other works–The new African galleries are now open, the Egyptian collection remains a favorite with my kids, and I’m partial to the Greek & Roman collection.
And mark your calendars: The Chimera: Andy Warhol through the 1980s exhibition, on view August 25-November 25, 2018, “draws on Polaroids, silver gelatin prints, and screen prints from the Michael C. Carlos Museum’s Works on Paper collection to explore Warhol’s working process and his nuanced takes on identity, self-perception, beauty, composition, and the American icon. In contrast to his most iconic pop art prints, these lesser known works of art reveal a thoughtful and self-reflective artist interested in multiple techniques and stages of completion.”
