COLUMBIA — Within an hour on Wednesday afternoon, 10 visitors — eight adults, a preschooler and an MU student — entered the MU Museum of Art and Archaeology and walked up dozens of steps to make their after-lunch art pilgrimages on the second floor, where exhibits are grouped according to their places of origin on a world map. One can make a journey through civilizations and times, starting with a rainy night on a Japanese wood block print and finishing with the warmth of an amber yellow, ancient Greek glass plate.
