Remembering the Rome Trip in 2017

In the fall of 2017, Director’s Circle members joined Nasher Museum Director Sarah Schroth for an exclusive six-day trip to Rome. Nasher supporters were given special access to the Vatican, 17th-century churches with paintings by Caravaggio and architecture by Bernini, and a behind-the-scenes tour of the restoration of the frescoes at the papal chapel in the Scala Santa. The group explored contemporary architecture in Rome by Renzo Piano (Parco della Musica) and Zaha Hadid (MAXXI), and met the artistic director at MAXXI, Rome’s Museum of the 21st century. They visited private collectors’ homes, and contemporary artists’ studios.
