Sixty-five 19th-century plaster casts of ancient western and eastern, medieval, and renaissance works of art were acquired from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and have been stored, cleaned, catalogued, mounted, copied, and exhibited on the Fairfax and Prince William Campuses. Students, faculty, and administrators collaborated on the project. Carol Mattusch, Mathy Professor of History and Art History and a world-renowned expert on ancient bronzes, spearheaded the acquisition of the plaster casts, which had been in storage for decades after the museum replaced its cast collection with original works of art.
