Professor Jon Frey from Michigan State University will be speaking about the contexts for re-use of materials, especially stone architectural elements, in the ancient world AKA spolia! Spolia study raises interesting issues re cognitive landscapes, use of resources, sustainability, etc. in addition to purely architectural considerations.
Dr. Frey will also share his expertise about GVSU’s own bit of spolia, a column capital in the university art collection.
The Workshop will be at 5pm, in the Amway Boardroom on the DeVos campus. Sponsored by the Art History program and GVSU Art History club.
