The golden treasures of Peru’s pre-Inca heritage take center stage at the Irving Arts Center through December.

Presented in partnership with the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C., Peruvian Gold: Ancient Treasures Unearthed showcases gold ceremonial and funerary masks, textiles, ceremonial ornaments, ceramics, and jewelry. The museum opens every day in December, except for Mondays and Christmas Day, and is holding a series of lectures, film screenings, and other activities to complement the exhibit.
