While the Dahesh Museum is looking for a new permanent home for its collection of academic painting, it is loaning works to other museums.
The Joseph I. Lubin House at Syracuse University is currently exhibiting "In Pursuit of the Exotic: Artists Abroad in 19th Century Egypt and the Holy Land." The show will be up until April 30, 2009, and the museum is open Monday - Saturday, 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
