Opening Celebration: Lod Mosaic from Israel

February 10, 2013 1:00 PM-4:00 PM

Unearthing a Masterpiece: A Roman Mosaic from Lod, Israel

Exhibition Opening and Ribbon Cutting


A large and exceptionally well-preserved ancient Roman floor mosaic discovered in Lod, Israel in 1996, and excavated in 2009, makes its final United States stop at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia before traveling to the Louvre in Paris and eventually, to a new museum being built just for it in Israel.

The exhibition opening begins at 1:00 pm Sunday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Joining Julian Siggers, Penn Museum Williams Director, are Yaron Sideman, Consul General of Israel to the Mid-Atlantic Region; and Italian dignitaries. 

Dr. Rose draws guests into the process of "Deciphering the Lod Mosaic" at a 2:00 pm talk. A Family Second Sunday Workshop, "Marvelous Mosaics," invites guests of all ages to discover the many mosaics in the Penn Museum's collection, and create an original mosaic in the walk-in workshop from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

The exhibition continues through May 19.  http://www.penn.museum/upcoming-exhibits/891-unearthing-a-masterpiece-a-...
