Bronze1The ownership of Benin bronzes is a topic of great importance and complexity and has been the subject of many discussions at museums as well as with experts and collectors around the world. How does one engage in responsible collecting of archaeological materials, and other cultural property, including works of art from once-colonized areas as culture changes? Join Howard Nowes, AAA, Art for Eternity as he sorts out the restitution confusion.

This is a recording of a lecture previously held live on April 1, 2024.

1.5 CE credits

The 2024 Spring Lecture Series is supported by Thomas Folk, Ph.D., AAA.
