Ancient Egyptian Family Day
The Art Museum at The University of Memphis is hosting an Ancient Egyptian Family from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the lobby of the Communication and Fine Arts building.
"This day is an opportunity for parents and children to experience culture by Egyptologists," said Lisa Abitz, assistant director of the Art Museum.
The Family Day is an annual event sponsored by the Institute of Egyptian Art and Archeology.
Attendees can participate in activities such as writing their names in hieroglyphics, making copies of ancient Egyptian amulets, designing and creating their own ancient Egyptian mobiles and learning to draw like an Egyptian.
The event is free and open to the public.
"I think this event is important every year because it informs and entertains people of all ages," said Patricia Podzorski, curator of the Egyptian art at The U of M.
Students that majors in ancient Egyptian history will share their knowledge at the event.
"The students will be able to tell what they know about a subject they genuinely love," Abitz said.
