Exhibition: Temples and Tombs

Temples and Tombs is open at the Cummer Museum from 22nd December 2006 until 18th March 2007.
"The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens has been preparing for Temples and Tombs: Treasures of Egyptian Art from The British Museum for over a year. A lot of planning had to go into bringing an exhibit of such stature to Jacksonville. Then, the Cummer Museum had to ensure the construction of the new Central Gallery would be complete in time for the opening of the exhibit. Finally, staff from the Cummer and The British Museum, including Spencer, had to carve out two weeks to prepare the gallery for the museum members’ opening tonight. Spencer said he and two of his colleagues from The British Museum spent 12 days in Jacksonville to prepare the gallery and bring in the artifacts."
There are a few black and white photographs at the end of the article.
