IEAA Events - Spring 2020


The Egyptian Gallery is temporarily Closed.

The Institute of Egyptian Art & Archaeology, as part of its mandate as a Tennessee Center of Excellence, presents programs and educational events for the public. The IEAA brings world-renowned Egyptologists to the Mid-South for lectures and symposia. In addition, educational events are offered to schoolchildren and their families. Occasionally, the Institute also sponsors educational tours to Egypt.

The Institute of Egyptian Art & Archaeology provides trained graduate student docents for groups wishing a guided tour of the ancient Egyptian and African ethnographic exhibitions in the Art Museum of the University of Memphis. In addition, the Art Museum and the IEAA are sometimes able to provide guided tours of the Contemporary exhibitions at the Art Museum.

To schedule a tour, contact the Art Museum at 901.678.2224.

Note: All groups are required to contact the Art Museum in advance and are strongly encouraged to schedule a docent-guided tour.
