  • The Mummies: From Egypt to Toledo

    February 3, 2018 – May 6, 2018

Presented by:
Toledo Museum of Art
About the Event:

February 3 through May 6, 2018 Tuesday & Wednesday: 10 am to 4 pm Thursday & Friday: 10 am to 9 pm Saturday: 10 am to 5 pm Sunday: Noon to 5 pm Closed Mondays In 1906 the founders of the Toledo Museum of Art, Edward Drummond Libbey and Florence Scott Libbey, visited Egypt, where they purchased a pair of Egyptian mummies as part of a collection of artefacts. Due to conservation issues and ethical considerations surrounding the display of human bodies, these mummies are only occasionally on view. This special installation will trace the history of Egyptian mummies, from their lives and burial rituals in Late Dynasty Egypt to their rediscovery during the Napoleonic era and the resulting Egyptomania for subsequent generations. It will place the mummies in historical context through additional Egyptian objects and artifacts from the TMA collection and loans from other institutions. The exhibition will also explore several intersecting issues for TMA and other cultural museums related to the collecting and display of these fascinating and significant objects, including whose mummies are these, do they belong in an art museum and what can we learn from them?
