Museum of Antiquities at the University of Saskatchewan Celebrates 40 Years

The Museum of Antiquities is busting out with a fundraiser in order to purchase a new piece in honour of their 40th anniversary.

The museum is in the midst of a fundraising campaign to raise $4,000 by the end of the summer in order to purchase a replica bust of the Roman emperor Augustus.

“We hope to raise the money and unveil the bust at our anniversary reception in September,” Museum of Antiquities community outreach spokesperson Courtney Tuck said. “The original piece is known as the Augustus Bevilacqua and is housed in a museum in Munich right now.”

The replica of the bust will be made at the Louvre in Paris and sent to the museum after they have raised the money needed for its purchase. So far the fundraising campaign has raised around $1,200.
