Second Sundays: Like a Goddess

March 11 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Celebrate Women’s History Month by engaging in activities inspired by women and goddesses found within our reinstalled gallery, Art of the Ancient Mediterranean. Activities are free with Museum admission.


Experience contemporary storytelling in a musical improv performance and workshop referencing famous women of the Ancient Mediterranean.

Learn about Roman Imperial Period hairstyling—as seen in Portrait Bust of a Woman—during an interactive presentation by hair archeologist, Janet Stephens. Then practice the techniques on a partner or mannequin.

Honor the special woman in your life in an artmaking project utilizing 3D printing, vessels, and the visual vocabulary of glyphs created by visual artist, Cheryl R. Riley.

Achieve immortality—like the ancient Romans as demonstrated by Portrait Bust of a Woman—by life casting your face, hands, or feet with artist, Jeanine Alfieri.

Program also includes gallery tours; planetarium shows, including Skywatchers of Africa; and more.

Presented by Horizon Foundation for New Jersey.
