Event Description
The Sumerian myth of Enki and Ninsikila celebrates the formation of an ancient trade center. The mythohistoric poem, The Cursing of Akkade, relates how a flourishing city is made a wasteland when a misguided ruler violates the divine will. Willamette students under the direction of Associate Professor Jeanne Clark perform excerpts from the two poems.

This event is presented in conjunction with the "Breath of Heaven, Breath of Earth" exhibition at the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. For full exhibition information visit: www.willamette.edu/go/ancient />
