Museum Sponsors Trip to Sepphoris Exhibit

Wake Forest University’s Museum of Anthropology will sponsor a bus trip to see “Sepphoris in Galilee: Cross Currents in Culture” at the North Carolina Museum of Art on Saturday, April 12.

Kenneth Hoglund, associate professor of religion at Wake Forest, will lead the trip. Hoglund is the co-director of the Sepphoris project and the exhibit’s co-curator.

Sepphoris, located two miles from Nazareth, was the political and economic capital of Galilee for most of the Roman period and the site of a prominent academy for rabbis in earlier times.

The bus will depart for Raleigh from the anthropology museum at 8 a.m. and return by 5 p.m. The afternoon will be spent at the North Carolina Museum of History. Lunch is available at the North Carolina Museum of Art CafÈ. The cost of the trip is $25; $22.50 for Museum Friends. Spaces must be reserved by April 7.
