The AIA has announced the success of its Spring Gala on its website. See http://aia.archaeological.org/gala/
But the optics of such a posh event are seemingly at odds with the anti-business rhetoric one sometimes hears from AIA members at hearings of the State Department Cultural Property Advisory Committee.
It's also interesting to note that the AIA auctioned off an antique Turkish kilim during the event. See http://aia.archaeological.org/gala/auction/fethiye-kilim Again, one wonders given all the rhetoric about due dilligence whether the item was imported into the United States consistently with Turkish export controls.
