On September 26, Penn Museum and several organizations hosted an afternoon event as the Museum celebrated the opening of His Golden Touch: The Gordion Drawings of Piet de Jong with a wider look at the culture of Turkey.  The afternoon featured Turkish dancing and music, plus an authentic cuisine demonstration, talks on ancient and modern Turkey, crafts, and more. Throughout the day families enjoyed creating traditional Turkish arts and crafts by participating in an Ebru workshop to learn the ancient Turkish art of marbling or "cloud painting" on paper.
