Tales of monsters, heroes, and gods found in classical Greek mythology have captivated audiences for over three millennia. This small exhibition drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection features works on paper by artists who have used stories from the Odyssey and ancient Greek myths to address challenging issues such as race, culture, and the psychological effects of war, or as a vehicle to explore desire and the universal subconscious.

This exhibition includes works by Romare Bearden, Roberto Matta, and Reuben Nakian. www.sanjosemuseumofart.org
