The Exhibition at the Smithsonian’s Sackler Gallery

The exhibition “The Cyrus Cylinder and the Ancient Persia: A New Beginning” is on display at the Smithsonian’s Freer and Sackler Galleries through April 28, and it will then travel to Houston to be displayed at the Museum of Fine Arts. The touring exhibition is the result of the partnership between IHF America, the British Museum, and the Arthur M. Sackler gallery.
