Klein talks with researchers at
new Acropolis museum location


Nancy Klein, assistant professor of architecture at Texas A&M’s College of Architecture, talks to Greek and British colleagues about her research on 6th century B.C.E. Greek architecture in the new Acropolis museum in Athens.

Currently, only the first floor of the museum is open, with the rest of the museum scheduled to open in March.

In 2008, an exhibit of photographs of ongoing Acropolis restoration efforts was displayed at the J. Wayne Stark Galleries. Klein, who specializes in the art and architecture of ancient Greece and Rome, introduced the exhibit with a public lecture about the restoration efforts and importance of the Acropolis.

When complete, the new museum will hold 45,000 square feet of exhibition space; by contrast, in its previous location, the museum held only 4,700 square feet for displays.
