Reception: 5:30 p.m., Lecture: 6:00 p.m. There’s another war in Iraq, the conflict over ownership and preservation of archeological heritage. It’s the most recent chapter in a question that’s as old as man’s desire to dig up the past . Whose art is it anyway? Art historian and legal scholar Professor Patty Gerstenblith shares her perspective on the art preservation crisis now gripping the Middle East and charts a critical path to worldwide artistic and cultural preservation. A collaborative project of the IU Kelly School of Business, the IU School of Law - Indianapolis, and the Herron School of Art. See Poster
