Member Experiences: Virtual Exhibition Tour of Arts of Global Africa

 Tuesday, August 18, 10am 

Join us for a docent-led virtual gallery tour of the Museum’s Arts of Global Africa collection. The works range from historic artifacts, primarily dating to the late 19th and early 20th century, to examples of contemporary artistic creativity.  The continental scope of the collection—especially its inclusion of art from northern, eastern and southern African countries—is a particular strength.

If you would like to attend the event please send an email to

Lunch & Learn: An Artful Conversation with Dahlia Elsayed

 Thursday, August 20, Noon 

Artist Dahlia Elsayed makes paintings and sculpture that read like a visual diary of worldbuilding. Her fictional landscapes evoke both material place and psychological states, and suggest a dual way of reading personal territory that encourages exploration, pause and suggestion. She will talk about her recent projects and studio practice during the months of lockdown.
