EXHIBITION IMAGE CAPTION
The Labours of Herakles
17th April - 15th August, 2015
Hercules – most famous of all the Greek heroes – steps directly out of a Greek vase and into the New World in this series of beautifully observed lithographs and etchings. New Zealand artist Marian Maguire imagines Herakles as nineteenth-century colonist, venturing into a landscape where his labours are both mundane and extraordinary.
What: paper-cutting workshop
When: Wednesday 5th August, 7-9pm
Where: Museum of Classical Archaeology, Cast Gallery

Drink and Draw will become a regular feature of the Museum of Classical Archaeology's creative programme after queues formed outside the Museum for the first time at this year's Museums at Night event.
