Gallery Talk: Head-Dressing—The Art of Crowns, Helmets, Hats, and Headdresses

September 6, 2016
Meet in Gallery 100
Free with museum admission

Join museum educator Robert Smith III to explore a recent gift of African hats, helmets, and crowns to the Art Institute. The gift will serve as an opening to a broader discussion on the ways in which head and hair fashions are used across the continent to express leadership, personal life stage, social and cultural affiliations, and individual identity.
