In August 2017, the Oriental Institute is hosting an international Hittite conference. These conferences occur every four years, and this is the first one in Chicago. The two 10 x 20 foot canvases, Veil and Cassiopeia will be displayed. A few years ago they were displayed at the Rockefeller Memorial Chapel which is actually on the same city block as the Oriental Institute. Both of these institutions are part of the University of Chicago.
This exhibit will continue through mid-September 2017. Breasted Hall, where the exhibit is located, is used for lectures. Before visiting, please call the Oriental Institute’s information desk, 773-702-9522 to make sure that the hall is open.
