The Foundation for International Arts & Education

The Foundation for International Arts & Education (FIAE) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization. Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, the Foundation was created to help protect and preserve the historical and cultural legacy of the countries of the former Soviet Union. Through its Arts And Exhibitions Program, the Foundation organizes and manages art exhibitions at venues throughout the United States. Educational programs for students of all ages are a key component to each of the Foundation's projects, including practical training programs for various professional groups.

These guys are hosting an event on December 15th called "Of Grass and Gold: Nomads of Kazakhstan":

an exhibition that among other artifacts, would present the Golden Warrior (5th-4th century BC) and the newly discovered treasures of Berel in the context of the Kazakh and Central Asian steppe, showing the evolution of a nomadic lifestyle that continued until recently. The exhibition will combine extraordinary silver and gold artifacts produced by the artisans of these nomadic tribes with descriptions and analyses of ongoing excavations. The exhibit, developed by an outstanding team of American and Kazakh scholars, will be presented in several American museums. The Government of Kazakhstan has provided substantial financial support for the development of this project.
