About this Event
Sacred Deities of Ancient Egypt is a photography exhibit featuring work by artist and author Jacqueline Thurston, on view at the Hearst Museum of Anthropology through January 2020. Thurston's photographs of depictions of deities in ancient Egyptian tombs grant the viewer access to otherwise inaccessible dimly lit chambers and bring light to the power of feminine figures in the ancient past.
Join us for a free talk and reception celebrating the opening of the exhibit. Light refreshments will be provided while you explore the exhibition. Thurston's recently published book featuring her photographs and writing included in the exhibit will also be available for purchase and signing.
This event has been generously supported by the Northern California Chapter of the American Research Center in Egypt.
