California Science Center’s 20th annual Discovery Ball took place March 23. The event, which was inspired by the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in 1922, had a cocktail reception set in the year 1921, when archaeologist Howard Carter and his British sponsor, Lord Carnarvon, were searching for the tomb. Actors in vignettes represented Carter’s crew, searching for the grave in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings. Dusty scaffolding and canvas field tents added to the ambiance.
