Coming exhibits to move beyond the traditional

The Columbus Dispatch

From quilts to Chihuly glass, the next two years of exhibitions at the Columbus Museum of Art will be packed with fare that goes beyond traditional paintings and sculptures.

A schedule extending through March 2010 has been crafted to include a mix of rare, scholarly and instantly recognizable works, chief curator Catherine Evans said. . . .

"To Live Forever: Egyptian Treasures From the Brooklyn Museum," Feb. 13 to June 7, 2009 -- Drawing from the Brooklyn Museum's vast collection of Egyptian monuments and objects, the exhibition will feature more than 100 pieces that illustrate the ancient civilization's view of death and the afterlife.

"The oldest object is from 1185 B.C., the most recent is from A.D. 100," Evans said.
