ATLANTA -- "Monsters, Demons, and Winged-Beasts: Composite Creatures of the Ancient World" will end its run on Sunday, June 19 at Emory University's Michael C. Carlos Museum (571 South Kilgo Circle NE).

Museum-goers, ancient art enthusiasts, scholars, students and families alike can still enjoy the rich world of myth, legend and high adventure seen through art and artifacts depicting imagined creatures from ancient times.

From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, June 10, visitors can also take advantage of free admission.

With over 150 objects, the exhibit traces the development and dissemination of "monstrous" imagery through works in gold, silver, precious and semi-precious stone, terracotta and papyrus.

The oldest object dates from 4000 BCE, while the most recent is approximately 1,400 years old. More than a dozen independent civilizations are represented, in a geographical area stretching from Spain to Northwest China, from Egypt to France.
