Highlights Tour // Everything Old Is New Again

November 12, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

In the fashion world, we often see renewed interest in designs from the past when they are reinvented for present-day consumers. The same is true in the world of fine and decorative arts, in which work created in one period can evoke a time and place long ago and far away.

Join Dr. Graham C. Boettcher, The R. Hugh Daniel Director of the Birmingham Museum of Art, as he explores “revival styles” including the Egyptian, Greek, Gothic, and Norse Revival movements.

Each Highlights Tour offers an intimate look at specific areas of the BMA collection with a BMA curator or educator. Join us to learn something new about our collection of more than 27,000 works of art! 

Tours begin in the Main Lobby of the BMA.
