Breaking News: Are There Hidden, Undiscovered, Rooms in the Tomb of King Tut?

In August, 2015, a prominent British Egyptologist published a new study on the tomb of Tutankhamun. In that study, he argues that in his opinion, there may be two additional, as yet unopened, rooms inside Tut's tomb. This lecture examines these new arguments in depth, and in light of the tomb's original discovery. If two more rooms do in fact exist, they may be undisturbed, a highly intriguing possibility - to say the least. You won't want to miss this image filled presentation with an entertaining, and popular speaker! 

For students in grades 5 & up. No registration.

Art & Craft - A POV/PBS Documentary

Tuesday, December 13, 2016 - 6:30pm
Event location: 
Mark Landis is one of the most prolific art forgers of the modern era — and he isn't in it for the money. In the last 30 years he's copied hundreds of pieces, from 15th-century icons to works by Picasso and even Dr. Seuss, then donated them to museums across the country. When a tenacious registrar discovers the ruse, Landis must confront his legacy and a chorus of duped professionals intent on stopping him. But Landis is a diagnosed schizophrenic, driven since his teens to escape "the life of a mental patient," and ending the con isn't so simple. A cat-and-mouse caper told with humor and compassion, Art and Craft uncovers the universal in one man's search for connection and respect.
