Exhibition Opening and Ribbon Cutting
Unearthing a Masterpiece: A Roman Mosaic from Lod, Israel

A large and exceptionally well-preserved ancient Roman floor mosaic, discovered in Lod, Israel, in 1996, and excavated in 2009, makes its final United States stop at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia before traveling to the Louvre in Paris and eventually, to a new museum being built just for it in Israel.

The exhibition opening begins at 1:00 pm Sunday with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Jacob Fisch, Executive Director, Friends of the Israel Antiquities Authority; Yaron Sideman, Consul General of Israel to the Mid-Atlantic Region; Renato Miracco, Cultural Attach√©, Italian Embassy, and Luigi Scotto, Consul General of Italy in Philadelphia join Museum Director Julian Siggers.  C. Brian Rose, Mediterranean Section Curator-in-Charge and content expert for the exhibition, participates.

Dr. Rose draws guests into the process of "Deciphering the Lod Mosaic" at a 2:00 pm talk. A Family Second Sunday Workshop, "Marvelous Mosaics," invites guests of all ages to discover the many mosaics in the Penn Museum's collection, and create an original mosaic in the walk-in workshop from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
