Amherst Exhibit Marks Anniversary of the Looting of Iraq Museum
(2009-04-13)
(wfcr) - This week marked the sixth anniversary of the looting of the Iraq museum in Baghdad. Over several days in 2003, fifteen thousand artifacts dating back thousands of years were stolen during the chaos of the American invasion. To mark those losses, the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College is holding a special exhibit reflecting on both ancient Iraqi art... and contemporary works.
