World Premiere Exhibition of 'Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru' at Boca Raton Museum of Art
Eager fans can finally secure their coveted places in line for 'Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru,' a once-in-a-lifetime immersive experience.
Debuting October 16, 2021, Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru takes flight for the first time and Boca Raton Museum of Art is expecting tourists from around the world for the inaugural stop of its global tour.
Eager fans can finally secure their coveted places in line for this once-in-a-lifetime immersive experience. This combination of rarely seen, world-class museum artifacts alongside technological breakthroughs in virtual reality. The collection is on loan from Museo Larco in Lima, Peru, and Museo de Sitio Manuel Chávez Ballón in Aguas Calientes, Peru.
Cityneon presents the exhibition with support from the Government of Peru, the Peruvian Ministry of Culture, and in partnership with Inkaterra Asociación. Many of these stunning 192 priceless artifacts are from royal tombs, including spectacular objects that belonged to noble Andean lords, and have never-been-seen before out of Peru.
Guided throughout the exhibition by Ai Apaec, a mythical Andean hero, visitors will gain a window into transformation through the forces of nature that result in his death and subsequent rebirth. In this exotic land nothing is fixed and beings can change from one form to another. Throughout this dramatically staged expedition, the sounds of roaring jaguars, screaming macaws, and torrential rainfall surround visitors as they unravel the mysteries of Andean cosmology and marvel at the sophistication of Andean artists.
"At this once-in-a- lifetime exhibition, visitors will have the opportunity to come face-to-face with history in a whole new way," said Executive Chairman & Group Chief Executive Officer of Cityneon, Ron Tan. "We are excited to provide the chance for guests to encounter the ancient cultures who lived in this impressive fortress 7,000 feet above sea level in the Andes Mountains."
