Tuesday, 6:00 pm
Annual Elizabeth Watts and Howard C. Petersen Lecture
Antiquities and Museum Acquisitions: Penn Museum Leading the Way

In 1970, the Penn Museum stopped acquiring antiquities that had been looted from their archaeological context and illegally exported from their country of origin. The Pennsylvania Declaration, signed in April of 1970, made this museum a leader in the fight to stop the destruction of the world’s ancient heritage. Dr. Richard Leventhal, founder and director of the Penn Cultural Heritage Center and Curator, American Section, and Dr. C. Brian Rose, Curator-in-Charge, Mediterranean Section, present the context for this important decision. Reception to follow for Museum members at the Fellows level and above. Lecture admission: Pay-what-you-want. For more information, call 215.898.2680.
