Jump past Instagram images to the footer. Change of plans! This afternoon’s Artist Talk will now be given by @mhcartmuseum Associate Curator Aaron Miller, who will speak about Zig Jackson’s work in dialogue with Mac Chambers ‘19. We hope you can join us! Be sure to stop by the @mhcartmuseum this Thursday, November 15, at 4:30 PM for a Gallery Talk by artist Zig Jackson. A professor of photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design and a member of the Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara Nation, Jackson challenges popular and deeply ingrained conceptions of Native Americans through his photographs. Jackson will speak about his work featured in the Museum’s Collection Spotlight “Photographing Native America,” curated by Mac Chambers ‘19 and on view until December 16, 2018. We hope you can attend!

Thank you to all those who have  served, are serving, or will serve in the future. We are grateful for your hard work and dedication to keeping the United States safe. This WWII poster was designed by Carolyn Moorehead Edmundson for the US Public Health Service, Federal Security Agency, between the years 1942-1944. 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!
