BOCA RATON — The traveling exhibition “Machu Picchu and the Golden Empires of Peru” will make its world premiere this fall at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. 

The bilingual exhibition, announced in May at the museum, will feature "the most impressive" Andean gold collection ever to travel the world. The gold attire of a Chimú emperor that dates to 1300 AD is among the exhibition's highlights.

“Machu Picchu remains an enduring symbol of the great Incan empire, but it is merely one legacy of the dozens of advanced societies that flourished in ancient Peru for more than 3,000 years. The rich history of the Andean cultures has left behind priceless treasures of great importance,” said Boca Raton Mayor Scott Singer. Mpre in link.
