Byzantine Art at The National Gallery

If you teach in the Washington, DC area, send your kids to the National Gallery of Art in October to see their collection of Byzantine art.  The exhibit opens on October 6th and continues until March. According to the museum, "the exhibition explores the coexistence of paganism and Christianity, secular works of art used in the home, the intellectual life of Byzantine scholars, and the art of the Palaiologan dynasty before the fall of Byzantium." My thanks to my colleague, Jeff Feinstein, for sending me the link.
