“Akhenaten, The Human Pharaoh”
The Ancient Egyptian king Akhenaten was unusual for his apparent androgyny and his heretical religious ideas. He was also the only pharaoh to cultivate a public image as an affectionate family man rather than a terrifying god. Presented by Assoc. Prof. Brenda Edgar, Fine Art Department, Jefferson Community and Technical College. Registration required.
