KANSAS CITY, Mo. — An ancient Roman sculpture is making its U.S. debut in Kansas City.
The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art says in a release that the red-marble "Fauno rosso" is on view for the first time in America through Sept. 30 in the museum's Kirkwood Hall. Admission is free.
The sculpture dates to the second century and depicts a satyr. The museum says it's in Kansas City thanks to a new relationship between the Nelson-Atkins and the city of Rome.
The loan is part of a collaboration with the Capitoline Museums in Rome. The program sends Roman masterpieces to the U.S. for display in Washington, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Boston and Kansas City.
