Illinois Chapter (Chicago) Find us
Chicago has always been important to the archeological and cultural preservation of Egypt, due in large part to The University of Chicago's Oriental Institute.
The ARCE Chicago chapter was started in 2004 to provide an outlet for Egypt enthusiasts in the Midwest.
ARCE Chicago hosts frequent lectures and events and offers a variety of resources to ARCE members.
Inquiries about upcoming events may be made to Elaine Quinn.

INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF MUSEUMS
The International Council of Museums, in an effort to fight against illicit traffic in cultural goods, compiles the Emergency Red List of Egyptian Cultural Objects at Risk. This list aims to help art and heritage professionals and law enforcement officials identify Egyptian objects that are protected by national and international legislations.
