Gallery Talk | Translating Spaces, Picturing Ancestors

Friday, March 8, 2019

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 and scholars. For this talk, Elizabeth Abston, Curator of American art, will guide viewers through important historic maps of the Chickasaw homeland lent by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History and will discuss key works in the VISUAL VOICES exhibition that speak to the importance of ancestry and place.

This event is free and open to the public.
