Zahi Hawass at The Frist

Zahi Hawass is to speak at The Frist: " The world of ancient Egypt will come to life as internationally renowned archaeologist and Egyptologist Dr. Zahi Hawass presents Recent Discoveries in Egypt on Thursday, June 15 at 7:00 p.m. at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s James K. Polk Theater. Dr. Hawass will cover topics including compelling information about recent finds near the pyramids at Giza and in the Valley of the Golden Mummies and the discovery of a new pyramid at Saqqara. This one-night-only engagement is organized by the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in conjunction with the exhibition The Quest for Immortality: Treasures of Ancient Egypt, featuring the largest group of antiquities ever offered on loan from the Egyptian government for exhibit in North America."
