Posted to Announcement by Ms. Pam Kosty of University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at 2:08 PM

Special exhibition April 12 through December 1, 2014 at Penn Museum: 3260 South St., Phila, PA 19104 — The splendor of Byzantine Christian art—preserved through the ages in early Christian churches in both Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire, and the Cappadocia region of Turkey—is the focus of this large-scale photography exhibition. Sacred Spaces: The Photography of Ahmet Ertug, a two-part exhibition fittingly presented under the vaulted ceilings of the Museum's first floor Merle-Smith Galleries, features 26 works by acclaimed Turkish photographer Ahmet Ertug. Through his lens and with his exceptionally large-scale prints, Ertug captures the grandeur of the ancient Byzantine churches, all designated UNESCO World Heritage sites, in crisp, bright, detailed photographs. A digital-screen slide show of exterior images of the churches, and an interactive kiosk where visitors can explore the rich iconography depicted in Ertug's photographs, enhance the exhibition.
