Make an afternoon of Egypt-centered events at the Penn Museum this Saturday. Experience Ancient Egypt in galleries that span two floors and feature a 15-ton sphinx — the largest in the Western Hemisphere. You'll also learn the story behind the birth place of King Tut and hear a talk on “The Place and Role of Mothers in Private Tomb Decorations” at 3:30 p.m. the same day. Don’t forget to take a guided tour, free with admission.
A panel of specialists from New York and Philadelphia auction houses and galleries are gathering at the Michener Museum to explore the recent spike of interest in mid-century modern furniture. Speakers include James Zemaitis, former head of Sotheby’s, and David Rago of Rago Arts and Auction Center.
