Ancient Roman Mosaics

The Field Museum is currently hosting an exhibition of the amazing Lod Mosaic and on March 13th at 7:00 pm Dr. Michelle Paluch-Mishur will return to the library to present a slide lecture that explains Roman floor mosaic materials and processes. She also will discuss the major subjects Roman mosaicists depicted, including the animal themes seen in the Lod Mosaic and how these subjects relate to their specific residential or public setting. Dr. Paluch-Mishur's programs are always fascinating, even if you aren't familiar with the exhibit!
