Leading home, auto and business insurer RSA Insurance is partnering with the ROM to present Mesopotamia: Inventing Our World—the ROM’s summer blockbuster. This stunning exhibition showcases more than 170 priceless objects from the celebrated holdings of the British Museum, most of which have never been seen in Canada.
“As a global insurer with a proud heritage supporting progress, people and businesses around the world for over 300 years, we’re incredibly excited to be working alongside the ROM to bring these amazing artifacts to life and we are confident this exhibition will prove to be a fascinating adventure for all,” says Rowan Saunders, President & CEO, RSA Insurance.
The ROM is hosting Mesopotamia in its premiere North American engagement from June 22, 2013 to January 5, 2014. This acclaimed exhibition also features artifacts from the ROM’s own renowned collections and from the University of Chicago Oriental Institute Museum, University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum, Philadelphia) and Detroit Institute of Arts.
As one of Canada and Ontario’s largest insurance providers, RSA knows how important it is to recognize the past to plan for what’s to come—whether re-building the present or protecting our future. “RSA Insurance is proud to partner with the ROM to make the wonders of ancient Mesopotamia accessible to all in this one-of-a-kind exhibition for Canada and North America,” says Saunders.
