IraqThe Vanished Heritage of Iraq
Wednesday January 24, 2018, 7–9 p.m.
Course #41016. Register online.

Since the beginning of the conflict in Iraq in 2003, its cultural heritage has been the target of intentional destruction, such as the looting of the National Museum of Iraq, the building of an American base in the archaeological site of Babylon and the bombing of the golden dome of the al-Askari Mosque in Samarra. Attacks against the culture of Iraq have seen in recent days a dramatic escalation. Following the brutal destructions of many invaluable cultural items at the Mosul Museum, the destruction of the Mosque of the Prophet Jonah and the bulldozing of the ancient Assyrian cities of Nimrud and Nineveh by militants of the ISIL, the destruction of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hatra marks a turning point in the cultural cleansing underway.

Admission: $15 (includes refreshments). Drop-ins also welcome (space permitting).

"A Ribbon Around a Bomb": Frida Kahlo's Universal Appeal

Monday, February 19 | 7–9 p.m.

Frida Kahlo's work (and myth) will be examined along with many of her extraordinary paintings.
