Egypt’s Sunken Cities
When Oct 28, 2018 – Apr 14, 2019
Where Minneapolis Institute of Art, 2400 3rd Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55404, USA (map)
Description A blockbuster exhibition of ancient artifacts that were almost lost forever makes its way to the Minneapolis Institute of Art as it tours around the world. “Egypt’s Sunken Cities” features more than 250 works of art that were discovered by underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio while exploring the Aboukir Bay near the city of Alexandrea. Goddio’s team of archaeologists, Egyptologists, historians, geologists, geophysicists, and computer engineers unearthed (or “unwatered” in this case) incredible sculptures and artifacts from the lost cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, once thriving locations of the ancient world. The monumental statues—including jewelry, ceramics, and religious images carved in stone—were submerged in water around 800 C.E. until their rediscovery in 2000. Goddio will give a lecture at Mia on November 1, recounting the fascinating adventure of excavating the ancient sites. by Sheila Regan
