Global heritage is slowly being looted from archaeological sites and off the walls of churches and museums to feed the ever-growing appetite of collectors and museums from wealthy countries. As countries throughout the world are becoming more focused on preserving their heritage and their past, what will collectors and museums in the United States be like in the future? Richard M. Leventhal, University of Pennsylvania, will share his view in this engaging lecture. Sponsored by the Friends of the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology.
