Persepolis: Images of an Empire 

When: Sun., Sept. 3 2017
Flashback to the years 550-330 BC, when the Achaemenid Persian Empire was thriving in what is now Iran. Its citizens were adept at etching artwork into stone—murals of former rulers, immaculate details highlighting columns in expansive castle halls, and the like. Photos of these wonders were captured between 1931 and 1939, and this exhibition of that work closes after nearly a two-year run.
