East Building and Museum Park
Join us as we unveil the newly reinstalled African art gallery in our East Building with a daylong celebration of African art, nature, music, and culture! The Museum Park comes alive with music and dance performances, drum-making workshops, collaborative community art activities, food, African cultural activities, and more! Walk the new gallery and experience conversations with experts and storytellers, and participate in a collaborative art project with artist Maya Freelon Asante.
The day concludes with a free concert by world-renowned West African artist Angélique Kidjo (ticket required; tickets available August 1).
Generous support for the Threads of Africa celebration is provided by Lee and Libby Buck.
