This past weekend the San Antonio Museum of Art reopened the Greek and Roman Galleries and, yes, we understand you’ve been inundated with news about this event for the past weeks but let me tell you it’s definitely a sight to see. SAMA opened their doors to the newly reinstalled Denman Gallery to the public after six years of work. From Greek art spanning the period from 3000-31 B.C to a collection of Greek, Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic glass vessels from the eastern Mediterranean, SAMA presents an intensive collection of some of the most interesting specimens collected throughout history.

Prior to its six year hiatus, the Denman Gallery was one of the most popular galleries at SAMA. It is noted that 3,500 years of human civilization are detailed in the exhibition.

Here is a sampling of what the exhibit offers:
