Penn Museum Special Exhibits

Penn Museum · April 16, 2016 - September 3, 2017 The exhibit aimed to demonstrate the commonplace nature of "magical" practice in the ancient world through the display of a number of examples of "material magic". Exhibition development was directed by Kate Quinn, Dr. Robert Ousterhout, and Dr. Grant Frame. Michael assisted with research and curation of Greco-Roman artifacts, and he developed the exhibit’s section on "magical gems". The exhibit was reviewed in the journal "Material Religion" in 2017.
