Please note: The Museum's West Building will be closed Wednesday, March 20, for Art in Bloom installation. During the four days of Art in Bloom, March 21–24, tickets are required for admission to the permanent collection in West Building. East Building and the Museum Park will remain open and free to visitors. For this popular event, we strongly encourage visitors to check online ticket availability before arriving on campus, as many time slots are sold out.
The Bacchus Conservation Project is a multidisciplinary and multiphase endeavor. Take a look at the slide show to see the exhibition history of the sculpture and view images of the preliminary phases of the systematic study of the classical marble sculptures. Visit often to see Bacchus transform before your eyes!
