Farewell to the king

By Priyanka Sinhai

The great pharaohs of Egypt have achieved immortality! The air has been buzzing with Tutankhamun’s name since the official announcement in April 2008. It doesn’t get better than this — 2,000 years of ancient Egyptian art in our backyard, on view til May 17 at the Atlanta Civic Center. The Emory and Atlanta communities have only a few more weeks to enjoy this fascinating and exquisitely designed exhibition.

The equally fascinating companion exhibition at the Carlos Museum, “Wonderful Things: The Harry Burton Photographs and the Discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun,” has been extended until July 26.

For special promotions and exhibitions information go to carlos.emory.edu/tut. The companion exhibition, “Wonderful Things,” is free to staff, faculty and students.
