Between 1901 and 1912, an earl from England took it upon himself to move priceless sculptures from the Parthenon to Londons British Museum. Nowadays, that would probably be considered plunder back then, it was called imperialism. The Greek government is still working 200 years later to get the sculptures back, to little avail. But the cause inspired an exhibition by photographer Peter Yalanis, who got permission to scaffold the Parthenon with heavy camera equipment and light sensors and take pictures of pretty much every aspect. The exhibits sponsored by the American Committee for the Reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures.
Also on display is exhibit Inspired by Nature: Beyond Function. Both exhibits run until August 21. The museum opens Monday through Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Coral Springs Museum of Art (2855 Coral Springs Drive, Coral Springs). Admission costs $5 or less. Call 954-340-5000, or visit csmart.org.
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m. Starts: May 26. Continues through Aug. 21, 2010
