Join the National Museum of African Art for an evening of painting and beautiful Malian music under the summer skies! Start by getting inspired during a guided tour of World on the Horizon: Swahili Arts Across the Indian Ocean. This exhibition particularly highlights the personal, including home architecture and gorgeous articles of adornment. A wide range of fun studio photography demonstrates the cross-cultural influences in Swahili cultures and the incredible diversity of the Indian Ocean region.
Then, head out the Enid A. Haupt Garden to make your very own portrait! Use your portrait to consider questions of identities, nationalities, and how we represent ourselves to the world.
Free and open to the public. Please RSVP via Eventbrite
