MAM Conversations Clips: Screw
Sculptures and Federico Uribe
Federico Uribe transforms common objects
into colorful figures that stretch the limits of a given material’s
original use and value. He uses readymade materials in innovative ways;
golf balls, for example, serve as the fleece of sheep in some sculptures.
Enjoy this clip from the MAM Conversatiosn we did with Uribe

A Call to Justice, Action, and Mercy Presented by The
Bibliophiles, Inc. and MAM December 10, 6 p.m.
Join MAM’s African American Cultural Committee and The
Bibliophiles, Inc.– the oldest, continuously operating, incorporated, Black
book club in America – for a public book group discussion of Just
Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson.
The bestselling book, which has been adapted into a
feature film, has been described as “an unforgettable true story about the
potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to end mass
incarceration in America.”
November is Native American Heritage Month and MAM joins in
celebrating the rich histories, culture, and important contributions of our
nation’s First Peoples.
All month long, MAM will spotlight its nationally
renowned Native American collection of more than 4000 works – spanning the
period of approximately 1200 C.E. to the present day, including a growing
array of works by leading contemporary artists – and offer a lineup of
programming that celebrates the role of Indigenous communities in our
society and the visual arts in America.
