Hot Art: What Was Old is New in the ROM’s Gallery of Rome

A bust of Co-Emperor Lucius Verus from the Eaton Gallery of Rome

ON NOW Although the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal has been complete for some time, the Royal Ontario Museum continues to roll out new permanent exhibition spaces and artifacts in its historic Centre Block and Philosophers’ Walk wings. Thousands of years of history stretching across Europe, the Near East and North Africa are presented in four new galleries comprising the Eaton Gallery of Rome: the Bratty Exhibit of Etruria, the Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Gallery of Byzantium, Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Gallery of Rome and the Near East, and the Galleries of Africa: Nubia. Within each, visitors can discover an array of rare archeological relics—along with modern educational components—that speak to the splendour and dynamism of the ancient empires.
