Lucas Livingston
Museum Educator, Art Historian, Homebrewer

Sculpting the narrative of antiquity, Lucas is the creator and host of the Ancient Art Podcast, bringing you detailed, lively, and sometimes irreverent discussions of notable works of ancient art and architecture since 2006. He’s been with the Art Institute of Chicago since 2002, leading gallery tours, lectures, and seminars on the art of Asia and the Ancient Mediterranean World. Inspired by the archaeology of ancient brewing and wine-making, Lucas has recently taken up the enjoyable hobby of home brewing. He currently also finds himself having accidentally started a collection of hairless pets.
