Susan Kane (third from left), professor of art history and classical archaeology, and Andria Derstine (center), John G.W. Cowles Director of the Allen Memorial Art Museum, stand with visiting museum directors from Libya. The Libyan researchers, three of whom represent UNESCO World Heritage sites, were invited to spend January in Oberlin, New York City, and Washington D.C. to learn modern methods of museum collections management and planning that can be applied to Libyan museums and storage areas. Their visit is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of State’s Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation.
