Bowers Museum

 Jewelry from The Gold of Troy

 

Introduction

Santa Ana's Bowers Museum holds in its collection more than 130,000 works of art, with strengths including Native American art and Asian art. Students will receive guided tours of select current exhibitions, including Ancient Arts of China and The Gold of Troy. Students will also attend a discussion on the art and architecture of the Acropolis in ancient Greece.

Curated by authorities from the Shanghai Museum, Ancient Arts of China portrays the evolution of 5,000 years of Chinese technology, art and culture. The Gold of Troy features 20 pieces of fine women's jewelry exemplary of ancient Trojan craftsmanship. Their age and style indicate they were likely discovered at Troy, home of the most famous treasure ever unearthed.
