Friends of Excavations and Research at Aphrodisias
New York University Excavations and Research at Aphrodisias, which began in 1961, are sponsored by the Institute of Fine Arts in cooperation with the Faculty of Arts & Science with invaluable support from private individuals and the following groups of friends of the project: the Geyre Vakfı in Istanbul (President, Ömer M. Koç), the Friends of Aphrodisias in New York (President, Nina Köprülü); the Friends of Aphrodisias Trust in London (President, Lady Patrica Daunt); and the Aphrodisias Sevenler Derneği in Izmir (President, Lise Sur). The J.M. Kaplan Foundation and the World Monuments Fund® Robert W. Wilson Challenge to Conserve Our Heritage are major sponsors of the building restoration and conservation work. The 1984 Foundation sponsors the student architects. The Kress Foundation sponsors the archaeological conservators. The Levy Foundation and Oxford University’s Craven Fund sponsor the student archaeologists. And the following are sponsors of the major projects in the South Agora and the Tetrapylon Street: Mica and Ahmet Ertegün, Baron Lorne von Thyssen, the Headley Trust, the Malcolm Hewitt Wiener Foundation, and the Gilbert and Ildiko Butler Family Foundation. We are very grateful to all these supporters for their outstanding generosity.
