January 15-16, 2005
Escorted by Aaron A. Burke, Oriental Institute Ph.D.
Travel just a stone's throw away to the Queen City and discover ancient Jordan and the skilled artistry of the Nabataeans at the special exhibition Petra: Lost City of Stone, making its only Midwestern appearance at the Cincinnati Art Museum. On Saturday, meet up with the group at a welcome reception and preview these remarkable achievements in stone with an illustrated lecture by tour escort Aaron A. Burke, Oriental Institute Ph.D. Then on Sunday, learn the fascinating history of developing this exhibit with a special presentation by Glenn Markoe, Curator of Classical & Near Eastern Art and Art of Africa & the Americas at the Cincinnati Art Museum and co-curator of the exhibition. We'll then tour the exhibit and enjoy a private lunch at the museum, leaving the afternoon at your leisure.
