New Special Collections Exhibition "Egyptomania" the Western Fascination with Egypt" Opens at Pequot Library
Egyptomania: The Western Fascination with Egypt exhibition opens with a reception on November 1, 2018 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. The exhibition is on view November 1, 2018-January 27, 2019 during regular library hours. Enjoy an opening reception with a gallery tour by archeologist Megan Paqua at 7:00 p.m. Discover how Egypt has captivated the Western imagination from the 19th century until today. From Napoleon’s conquest of Africa to the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in the 1920s, Egyptomania swept America and Europe and came to symbolize the exotic, romantic, and mysterious. Featuring materials from Pequot Library’s Special Collections of rare books, manuscripts, and archives, including late-19th-century photographs of Egypt and archeological surveys, this exhibition explores the far-reaching influence of Egypt on Western culture. Light hors d'oeuvres and wine will be served at the reception, which is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
