TOUR OF THE KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA
From Madain Saleh to Doha: A Journey Across the Arabian Peninsula
November 1-13, 2013
A once in a lifetime exhibition calls for a once in a lifetime journey. Join us as we travel the ancient spice and pilgrimage roads that were brought so vividly to life in the Sackler's recent and much-talked-about exhibition, Roads of Arabia: Archaeology and History of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With many of the objects in the exhibition only recently unearthed, this exclusive Friends trip will be a journey of discovery as we search for the past alongside archaeologists and historians and learn more about the present by meeting private collectors and experiencing a vibrant contemporary art scene. We hope you will save the date!
