Next Meeting of the Pre-Columbian Society

Saturday September 14, 2019 at the
Princeton Art Museum from 10 am to noon.

There will be a tour of the exhibit "Legacy: Selections from the Gillett G. Griffin Collection" lead by Bryan Just. We will also tour the Museum's permanent Pre-Columbian exhibit.

Legacy: Selections from the Gillett G. Griffin Collection celebrates the life and career of Gillett G. Griffin (1928–2016), highlighting a selection of artworks and artifacts from the thousands that he donated and bequeathed to the Princeton University Art Museum. Griffin was not only a respected curator, scholar, and collector but also a beloved teacher—and one of the most memorable figures in the history of the university and the Princeton community. Among the fifty-five pieces in the exhibition will be Greek, Roman, Egyptian, ancient Near Eastern, Islamic, African, Chinese, Japanese, and Pre-Columbian antiquities, as well as European and American prints, drawings, and sculptures, and a handful of paintings and drawings that attest to Griffin’s own talents as an artist.
