Kiss the Goat!!
- Group Art Exhibit -

The word "tragedy" stems from the Greek word "tragodia," which literally translates to "goat-song." There are many
theories as to how this association evolved within language. It is commonly believed that the origins are found in
Athenian play competitions where the prize was a live goat. These contests were part of the worship to the God
Dionysus, involving chants and dances in his honor. Sometimes the goat would be sacrificed, and a goat lament sung
as the sacrifice was made. Hence the goat-song became intertwined with the Greek plays. Others believe that in the
plays themselves, men and women would wear goat-costumes to dress up as satyrs; half-goat beings that worshipped
and surrounded Dionysus in his revelry. The Romans knew Dionysus later as Bacchus, God of the vine, grape harvest,
winemaking, wine, ritual madness, religious ecstasy, and theatre.

The image of the goat, itself, is so intertwined in our various mythologies, from tales of nourishing the Gods themselves
with their milk to stories of tricking mortals onto dangerous paths. From the God Pan to the Christian images of the
Devil, the imagery of the goat follows us through the centuries. So now, with our eye towards the upcoming grape
harvest, let's make Bacchus smile with an art exhibit celebrating our cloven hooved friends.
Evil or adorable, goats are pretty great…and entirely METAL!
