Gallery Talk | Reflections from an Artist's Father

Friday, October 26, 2018

11:30 AM

Begins in The Museum Foyer

Gallery talks offer visitors the chance to engage with a single work, or pairing of works, for a 30-minute talk led by Museum curators and educators, as well as local artists, scholars, and special guests. James Gibson, father of contemporary artist Jeffrey Gibson, shares stories about the artist's earliest years and reflects on the significance of the exhibition, Jeffrey Gibson, Like A Hammer, which both honors and reimagines the role of Choctaw traditions in contemporary art.

This event is free and open to the public.
