Description

"Penn Cultural Heritage Center Lecture

Jason Felch & Ralph Frammolino, Authors of ""Chasing Aphrodite""

During this lunchtime presentation and discussion, Jason Felch and Ralph Frammolino will discuss their recent book Chasing Aphrodite: The Hunt for Looted Antiquities at the World's Richest Museum, a non-fiction narrative about how the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles became the focal point for an international scandal over the acquisition of looted Greek and Roman antiquities. They will discuss the roots of the scandal and talk about how the controversy ushered in a new era of enlightened cultural exchanges. An open discussion will follow a short presentation. Brown Bag Lecture - Bring a Lunch! Free admission.

The Penn Cultural Heritage Center is dedicated to the preservation and promotion of community-based Cultural Heritage. The Penn CHC is located in the Penn Museum at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.
