About: Chelsea Chenelle

I'm the Multicultural Undergraduate Intern for summer 2014 in the Getty's Web Group. Born and raised in San Diego, I came to L.A. to attend Loyola Marymount University, where I am pursuing a degree in art history and work as the managing editor at the Los Angeles Loyolan. I still haven't decided what came first—my love of art or my love of history.

      Ancient Bronzes Visit  Los Angeles

      Rare, powerful, beautiful, and unusual sculptures from the Ancient world demonstrate the innovations in technique, portraiture, and subject matter during the Hellenistic Period. 

      What is a Hellenistic Bronze? Here’s our explainer on the Getty Iris blog.

      is this the exhibition that just closed in Florence?

      Yes! It was at the Palazzo Strozzi, and will continue to the National Gallery of Art, DC in December.
