Join us for an exceptional journey through 5,000 years of Greek history and culture to explore The Field Museum’s limited-time exhibition, The Greeks from Agamemnon to Alexander the Great. Enjoy a private viewing of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition featuring over 500 priceless treasures from 21 Greek museums—many of which never have been displayed outside of Greece. At this exclusive event you will not only experience a private viewing of rare Greek antiquities; but also, you will explore the museum’s Egyptian exhibit, enjoy Greek hors d’oeuvres, beverages, meet fellow alumni and enthusiasts of Greek culture, and learn about the College of LAS Modern Greek Studies program. One of the highlights of the evening will be a presentation by the exhibition’s project manager, Susan Neill, and remarks by the Consul General of Greece in Chicago, Ms. Ioanna Efthymiadou.

We are excited to offer this amazing opportunity to our alumni and friends. Please join us on Friday, December 4 for an evening of culture, fun, and friendship.
