The lands of Ethiopia have an ancient and storied history that is explored in this pop-up exhibit. It is the fabled Land of Punt–God’s Land, and the kingdom of the legendary Queen of Sheba. Orthodoxy spread to Ethiopia through the Coptic Church of Egypt, and throughout the centuries they developed their own traditions and a unique style of iconography that uses a bright but limited color palette.

Members Only Opening: Thursday, May 1, 7:00-9:00PM, Free for members and their guests.
Please RSVP by May 12 to (978) 598-5000 x121. Enjoy a preview of this mini-exhibit along with Ethiopian coffee and chocolate from Clinton’s own Coffeelands Café. Artist Amy Fagin of 20th Century Illuminations will present a travelogue of her multiple trips to Ethiopia, with a focus on the amazing history of manuscript illumination, an important art form in Ethiopian culture.
