Recent televised footage revealing the looting of ancient treasures in Cairo's Egyptian Museum and other ancient sites in Egypt focused worldwide attention on the need to protect extraordinary artifacts that have withstood 5,000 years of history. As part of an afternoon celebrating Egyptian treasures, Walters Curator of Ancient Art Regine Schulz will expose dire circumstances as well as the development of formal and informal policies to protect Egypt's heritage.
Schulz was recently named Executive Director of the Roemer Plizaeus Museum in Hildesheim, Germany. Thus, after being a Walters curator since 2001, this will be her final Walters public talk before leaving Baltimore.
