Catalog - The Odyssey Project @ Museum of Art, University of New Hampshire

Our catalog for The Odyssey Project: An Old Story for Modern Times @ The Museum of Art at University of New Hampshire! “Fifteen women artists, all members of a long-running book group, were inspired to create art in response to Emily Wilson’s remarkable new translation of The Odyssey; the first English translation by a woman. The artists explore in different styles and media the characters and topics covered in Homer’s ancient poem: the meaning of home; the near impossibility of returning home; loyalty; families; migrants; war; poverty; identity; transformation. Participating artists include: Nancy Berlin, Ruth Fields, Carol Greenwood, Jane Kamine, Colleen Kiely, Marilyn Levin, Jennifer Moses, Karen Moss, Sterling Mulbry, Carla Munsat, Ellen Rich, Judy Riola, Civia Rosenberg, Sandra Stark and Brenda Star.
