If you've toured different areas of Cincinnati, you will notice the interesting architecture of many different time periods.

Join us for MountViews as Daniel E. Mader, MA, Professor of Art and Art History, Department of Art, Fine Art, Art Education, and Art History, speaks on "The Impact of Ancient Art and Design on Selected Cincinnati Architecture and Sculpture." The event is free and open to the public. It will be held on Monday, Nov. 23 from 6:15 p.m. - 7:45 p.m. at the Clifton Branch Library, 3400 Brookline Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45220.

Every society claims historical, cultural, and artistic legacy to the past.  This visual presentation will identify, for discussion, examples-both large and small-- of visual inspiration and/or application of ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman themes and motifs.  The focus will be examining as a concept, as a whole, or in details, Greater Cincinnati buildings, and public sculpture in situ.  The subject matter will include structures in the city, in parks, and in Spring Grove Cemetery.

Space is limited!  RSVP to Gala Erland at or by phone at 513-244-4411
