Want to make your mid-week an epic highlight? Exclusively for adults, this new 21 and over evening event offers visitors open access to the Museum with unique entertainment and engaging hands-on activities that connect visitors with the content and scholarship of the Oriental Institute. Themes change so Epic Wednesday is never the same event twice. Reinvent your Oriental Institute Museum experience with friends, family, or a special date – they’ll thank you for this unforgettable evening.
Join The Oriental Institute Museum for an evening of cheese, wine, and literature related activities. At 6pm, the highlight is a poetry reading by Dr. Haki R. Madhubuti, a leading poet and founder and President of Third World Press, whose portrait is included in the Our Work: Modern Jobs – Ancient Origins special exhibit.
