Prime Timers Minneapolis/St. Paul
Minneapolis Institute of Art
Friday, December 28th - 4 PM
We have an amazing opportunity to see THREE shows at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA)…two for free…all on the same day! First, on Friday December 28 at 4:00pm, we will be having a private, guided tour of MIA with a program called “Love, Sex & Scandal” where we will learn about the stories behind the art that you cannot get on any other tour. This entire tour and experience will be free for the first 20 people who RSVP!
Next, after the Guided Tour, you are welcome to stay at MIA to see “Egypt’s Sunken Cities” too. More than 1200 years ago, two ancient cities were lost to natural disasters and the rising tides of the Mediterranean Sea. Two decades ago, underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio and his team discovered those cities, revealing monumental statues, religious images carved in stone, exquisite jewelry, and delicate ceramics—and a greater understanding of life during the age of the pharaohs. Don’t miss this epic story of their discovery. Tickets for this show are $20 General Admission ($16 My Mia Members).
Finally, we will all be able to view a Film Screening titled, “Swallowed by the Sea: Ancient Egypt’s Greatest Lost City.” Screenings happen ONLY on Fridays, every hour from 10:15am to the last screening at 7:15pm. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the rediscovery of the lost city of Thonis- Heracleion, one of two ancient Egyptian cities featured in the exhibition. Produced by Scottish Television. (59 min., in English). This movie experience is also free!
