In conjunction with African Art: Selections from the Permanent Collection, the museum is pleased to welcome Karen Milbourne, Curator at the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution. Milbourne will discuss her project Earth Matters: Land as Material and Metaphor in the Arts of Africa.
Featuring more than 100 extraordinary works of art from 1800 to the present, the exhibition and publication, Earth Matters reveals how African individuals and communities have visually mediated their most poignant relationships with the land—whether it be to earth as a sacred or medicinal material, as something uncovered by mining or claimed by burial, as a surface to be interpreted and turned to for inspiration, or as an environment to be protected. Sponsored by the FUNd at CSU.
Wednesday, March 4, 2015, 5 p.m., Griffin Concert Hall.
All events are FREE and open to the public
