A Penn Cultural Heritage Center Lecture, www.pennchc.org.

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.
