Magnificent Mosaics
 
Magnificent Mosaics

Discover the beauty and opulence of mosaics in the exhibition Heaven and Earth: Art of Byzantium from Greek Collections. Mosaics were an important part of the Byzantine empire's visual culture and were featured prominently in both churches and secular structures.

Stop by the Getty Villa's Outer Peristyle and help create a mosaic with artist Karen Silton. Use pieces of tile and broken plates to contribute to a weeklong community mosaic project inspired by objects in the exhibition, and gain a better understanding of the traditional techniques used to make Byzantine mosaics. This free, drop-in workshop is open to all ages.
