Check out this post from N.S. Gill’s excellent ancient history blog on a show of ancient heroic art coming to San Diego next summer:

The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland (phone: 410-547-9000) will host a traveling exhibition of art from major museums, U.S. and European, on the topic of “Heroes, Mortals, and Myths in Ancient Greece,” from Oct. 11, 2009 – Jan. 3, 2010.
