PUBLIC TALK Greeks Bearing Gifts: Celebrating Canova in Cork   
Friday 24 August 1pm



Join Dr Michael Waldron for our special Heritage Week talk on the history of the Canova Casts. Ahead of our 200th Anniversary, come and explore this collection of sculptures that started it all in 1819.

Celebrate the European Year of Cultural Heritage with this free event which will have a particular focus on Laocoön and His Sons – a source for the proverb ‘Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.’  – a whistle-blower ahead of his time! 

This Project has been funded by The Heritage Council.

All welcome!
