Afternoon field trip to the @carlemuseum! @mhcartmuseum interns received a fantastic tour of the exhibit “Our Voice: Celebrating the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Awards” and were even able to make their own prints. A great end to the week if you ask us! #ericcarle #museums10 #fridayfunday #fieldtrip Our 'Hermes at Rest' sculpture is not at rest today! Kudos to @mhcartmuseum Senior Preparator Jackie Finnegan ‘08 for getting Hermes out of the pond and safely inside for winter (and for rigging this impressive contraption!) #museumpreparator #bronzesculpture #winterready Feeling unsure of what to do this weekend? Stop by the @mhcartmuseum on Saturday, November 10 at 1:30 PM for a Sightlines Tour led by Student Guide Summayya Wagenseil ‘19. Titled “Through the Eyes of the Artist,” Summayya’s tour will focus on the significance of the artist’s identity, exploring such elements as the artist’s biography, race, gender, & conditions in which they lived and created their work. We hope to see you there! Happening TODAY at 4:30! We hope to see you there! @mhcartmuseum Happy Halloween from the @mhcartmuseum! 🎃 If you want to add a little extra spookiness to your day or need something sweet to munch on, stop by the Skinner Museum today between 2 and 3! There will be candy, bubbles, & plenty of Skinner curiosities to learn about! Join us this Friday, November 2, at 4:30 PM in Gamble Auditorium for a dialogue between artist Curlee Raven Holton & actor and playwright Keith Hamilton Cobb. In their public conversation, titled “African American Perspectives on Othello,” Holton and Cobb will discuss the agency of artists of African descent, and share the experiences that led to their Othello-inspired projects in printmaking and theater. We hope to see you there!
