Crosscurrents of Culture

September 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am /

In this program for adults, specially trained docents present the Museum’s collection by means of verbal descriptions, three-dimensional tactile models based on original works of art, and sculpture. The experience may be enhanced by related music and/or art-making to provide multi-sensory access to the visual arts.

As we explore the Japanese, African and Native American galleries, we will look closely at art objects that reflect similarities between these cultures, including the importance of nature and the natural world, the spirit world and importance of ancestors.

Space is limited; reservations are required. Please RSVP by 4:30 pm on Wednesday, September 5, 2018.

VIP tours are also available for school-age or adult groups. To reserve your spot or learn more about group tours, call 205.254.2964 or email tours@artsbma.org.
