Eastern Mediterranean Gallery

Implementation of a reinstallation of a permanent exhibition on the art and artifacts of ancient Eastern Mediterranean cultures and peoples from the Late Bronze Age (1,500 B.C.) to the Roman Period (1,000 A.D.).

The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum) requests a $400,000 exhibitions implementation grant to install a 2,000-square-foot permanent gallery to showcase collections from the Levant and the Eastern Mediterranean. The Penn Museum holds one of the finest collections of ancient objects from the Israel, Jordan, Cyprus, and the Palestinian Territories in the world, with most of the collection coming from Penn''s own excavations. Much of this excavated material has never before been on display. Scheduled to open in fall 2022, the Eastern Mediterranean: Cultures, Conflict, and Creativity Gallery will introduce the Museum''s pioneering research and rich collections to public audiences.
