This event is in the past.
The Cyrus Cylinder is touring several cities in the US. The Cyrus Cylinder is a 2600-year old object of modern importance, and a symbol of multi-culturalism, tolerance, diversity, and human rights. The Cylinder is visiting the US for the first time in 2013 through a national tour officially sponsored by Iranian Heritage Fund (IHF) America.
The Cyrus Cylinder has been received with great enthusiasm in the USA and with the large number of Iranians living in the Los Angeles area we anticipate the number of visitors to the LA exhibition will be exceptional. The exhibition in LA will be from October 2, 2013 through December 2, 2013.
IHF organized a conference and invited scholars and experts who came from Europe, Iran, China, USA, and other places to explore their work. After a 2 day workshop they presented their findings to the public at a conference at the British Museum, where they addressed the various important aspects of the Cyrus Cylinder. The conclusion was that Cyrus Cylinder is one of the most authentic relics of Persia from 2500 years ago.
The US Tour is the first Tour to publicize the importance of Cyrus Cylinder. Other tours are planned for coming years. Apart from the exhibition, each museum is holding talks and conferences covering the various subjects the Cyrus Cylinder.
