Quest for Immortality

Showing from January 27th to May 7th 2006, the Public Museum of Grand Rapids is hosting the exhibition Quest for Immortality: "The invitation to host this landmark exhibition in Grand Rapids for one hundred days was made recently, and is directly related to the Public Museum’s success in organizing and hosting The Dead Sea Scrolls. The exhibition has been presented in Washington, D.C., Boston, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Milwaukee and Denver and will stop here before continuing to Nashville, Portland, and Houston and several European cities. Grand Rapids is the sole host city along the New York/Chicago corridor. Highlighting masterpieces from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the Luxor Museum in Luxor, formerly known as Thebes, and the archaeological sites of Tanis and Deir-el-Bahari, the exhibition includes several extraordinarily preserved artifacts that have not been publicly displayed before and many that have never been shown outside of Egypt."
