Virtual Tour: Up Close: Athena at the Athenæum

with Clive Martin

Join BA Docent Clive Martin for a discussion of the Goddess of Wisdom's presence in our library and her place in the ancient world, beginning with the towering sculpture of Athena and the monumental head of Zeus that grace the Athenæum's lobby.
For thirty years Clive Martin worked as a lawyer just two blocks from the BA and never stepped inside. Now that he's retired and a BA docent, he can't tear himself away from the place. Clive loves nothing better than introducing visitors to the building's many pleasures, treasures, and oddities, and to the history of this unique Boston institution.
