Elvis! hypertalk by Gary Vikan, Director, the Walters Art Museum
Who knew that Elvis, Michael Jackson and countless Christian saints actually share so much in common?! Their venerated remains draw pilgrims to Graceland, Neverland Ranch and countless places across the globe, so join us tonight and celebrate all things immaterial in their honor at the Walters.
Regional premiere screening of the film, a woman like that
Don’t miss the region’s premiere screening of award-winning filmmaker Ellen Weissbrod’s 2010 film, a woman like that.
This dazzling bio about Artemisia Gentileschi, the talented 17th century artist whose only limitation seemed tied to how women were perceived, is brilliantly juxtaposed to the filmmaker's own revelations during an obsessive journey to find the true meaning of "carpe diem".
The film’s filmmaker and producer will briefly introduce the film, followed by a short question/answer discussion with the audience.
Price: FREE to all college students, staff and faculty with a valid I.D. and artists with current membership in any area arts organization (partial list below). Also with free admission to the ticketed special exhibition Treasures of Heaven; pre-registration is recommended.

Egypt's Mysterious Book of the Faiyum
Date: 10/06/13 - 01/05/14
Time: 10:00 AM - 05:00 PM
The Book of the Faiyum is an exquisitely illustrated papyrus from Greco-Roman Egypt. One of the most intriguing ancient representations of a place ever found, the papyrus depicts the Faiyum oasis, located to the west of the Nile, as a center of prosperity and ritual. Egyptian jewelry, papyri, statues, reliefs and ritual objects will illuminate the religious context that gave rise to this enigmatic text, which celebrates the crocodile god Sobek and his special relationship with the Faiyum.

The second film in our three-part Egyptomania Film Series, Bubba Ho-Tep is a cult classic that tells the “true” story of what really became of Elvis Presley. Starring Bruce Campbell as Elvis, and Ossie Davis as John F. Kennedy Jr., the story begins at the Shady Rest Retirement Home in Texas where both are now spending their days. When mysterious deaths start occurring in the home, it’s up to these two old legends to show they have what it takes to defeat a 3,000 year old soul-sucking mummy!
