Art History Professor Presents Lecture at Toledo Museum of Art


Sinclair Bell, Assistant Professor of Art History at NIU, will present a lecture as part of the Ancient Roman Holiday hosted by the Toledo Museum of Art and the Archeological Institute of America–Toledo. As part of the Holiday, a series of lectures about the popularity of chariot racing will be presented. The Ancient Roman Holiday events take place on March 20.

The dangerous sport of chariot racing was extremely popular with large crowds in virtually every city across the Roman empire. Aristocrats and fans alike spent fortunes to support their favorite charioteers.

Professor Bell's lecture is entitled “Fans, Fame, and the Roman Circus,” and is one of three themed lectures that the day holds in store.
