Nice video clip of Roman Art From The Louvre Exhibit

Here's a nice video clip of some of the pieces included in the exhibit, "Roman Art from the Louvre", that is now on display at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. I was fortunate to see the exhibit when it opened in the US at the Seattle Art Museum in February.

Did you get to see the Roman Art displayed at SAM? I've seen it at the Louvre years ago and then again this year. This time I took pictures with my phone and was politely told not to take pictures. It was weird, I was never told I couldn't take pictures in any of the big museums in Europe...well you could if you didn't use flash. My phone doesn't have a flash, but I did get some great pictures before they told me I couldn't take them anymore.

Patrick, I traveled to Seattle specifically to see the exhibit. I already knew that SAM would not allow photography. Apparently all of the museums in Seattle have that restriction. Ridiculous!! I wonder if Microsoft's presence had any influence - they own Corbis image services. I too have taken non-flash images at The Louvre, The British Museum, The Capitoline Museum in Rome, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Getty Villa - all world class museums.
