Organized in collaboration with the Yale University Art Gallery, the McMullen's spring exhibition showcases art and artifacts from the eastern Mediterranean to tell the story of how the peoples of these regions incorporated various aspects of Roman culture from the 2nd through the 6th century CE. Students in the fall-semester course "The Art Museum: History, Philosophy & Practice" participated in planning the installation of this exhibition at the McMullen Museum. Sebastian Smee reviewed "Roman in the Provinces" in the March 1 edition of The Boston Globe, characterizing the exhibition as "rewarding" and "fascinating."
