Roman art exhibit draws 103,000 to museum

Nearly 103,000 visitors took in the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s recently closed exhibit “Roman Art from the Louvre,” setting an attendance record for a traveling exhibit at the IMA.

The collection of Roman artifacts opened Sept. 23 and closed Jan. 6, logging 102,980 visits and eclipsing the previous record holder, “Gifts to the Tsars.” That 2001 exhibit tallied 70,704 attendees.

The Roman relics will be taken to the Seattle Art Museum, where the exhibit will open Feb. 21.
