Gallery Talk: Honoring Women in African Art

May 18, 2017
12:00PM1:00PM
Meet in Gallery 100
Free with museum admission

Join Constantine Petridis, Curator of African Art, to learn how female imagery in traditional African Art serves as a tribute to the physical beauty and moral character of women, and also celebrates women's overt roles as mothers and wives. You’ll also learn how female imagery can also often refer to the hidden contributions women make to the political and religious spheres.
