In May 2014, a film crew of three from The Visionaries traveled to Egypt for the start of a four-day whirlwind schedule to capture the collaboration of Americans and Egyptians working together to preserve Egypt's cultural heritage through the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE).
The long awaited, eagerly anticipated, members only visit to the Arts of Greco-Roman Egypt Gallery and state-of-the-art conservation laboratory at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu did not disappoint.
Thanks to our members, supporters, and partners, 2014 has been a very productive year for ARCE. Here is a 60 second review!
- ARCE goes to Washington to share the impact of USAID-funded conservation and trainining initiatives
- Job Creation and Site Improvement Projects at Mut Temple, Qurna, and Deir El Shelwit
- Conservation Field Schools at Deir El Shelwit (Isis Temple) and Mut Temple (statue restorations)
- Archaeological Field School at TT 110
- Newly Opened sites for tourism at Mut Temple and Deir El Shelwit
- Concluded conservation of the Red Monastery in Sohag
- St. Anthony's exhibition gallery
- Emergency conservation response at the Islamic Museum in Cairo
- Filming of a PBS documentary to air in 2015
- Publication of the The Tomb Chapel of Menna (TT 69) through AUC Press
- Historic Cairo conservation, a nearly 20 year initiative, is concluded with an Arabic handbook to be used by Egyptian teachers and tour guides. Maps in Arabic and English make self-guided tours possible.
