Olympus is Manitoba’s first major display of classical antiquities in over half a century. This rare opportunity to see ancient Greek and Roman art on the Prairies closes March 6, 2016. The WAG is one of only two venues in North America to present the prized collection of over 160 works: marble statues and reliefs, bronze statuettes, terracotta vases, and jewellery, some over 2,000 years old! Come face to face with the Olympian gods: Zeus, Venus, Athena, and more. Take the free audio tour, and check out viewports with ancient scenes built of LEGO.

What to Wear

WHAT TO WEAR?

This year’s theme is inspired by the WAG’s current blockbuster exhibit, Olympus: The Greco-Roman Collections of Berlin. We know… one of the first things that comes to mind is to grab a white bedsheet and make yourself a toga, but don't strip your bed just yet! There are so many examples of Greco-Roman mythology in pop culture, so don’t be afraid to get a little creative! Take this quiz to find out which Olympian god you are.

We can’t wait to see how you dress for the deities at Art & Soul: Clash of the Titans. Share your costume ideas on social media by using #WAGtitans.
