Oplontis Exhibit at the Museum of the Rockies
This summer Dr. Regina Gee, Associate Professor of Art History at Montana State University and Adjunct Curator of Art History at the Museum of the Rockies has secured an exhibit at MOR featuring artifacts from Oplontis, a village near Pompeii that housed wealthy Roman families and their opulent belongings. “Leisure and Luxury in the Age of Nero: The Villas of Oplontis near Pompeii” will be on display at the Museum of the Rockies from June 18 to December 31.
MSU art student Marie Steiger recreates the design of a 2000-year-old Roman Wall painting for the exhibit.
