This Week at the CMA: Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt Opening, Make & Take, and More

Check out these five must-attend events this week at the CMA!
Open to all: Sun, 3/13, CMA Member Preview Days: Fri, 3/11, Sat, 3/12
The CMA’s next blockbuster exhibition opens this Sunday, March 13! This show invites you to uncover the stories behind ancient Egypt’s legendary rulers through stunning objects from the vast Egyptian holdings of the British Museum. Become a member to see it first and see it free on Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12!
Bring your family to the museum every second Sunday of the month from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and enjoy free art making activities and programs for all ages. This Sunday, let your creativity and the museum’s collection serve as your guides through ancient Egypt.
Keeping with the Egyptian theme, this Wednesday, join the CMA curator of photography Barbara Tannenbaum for a discussion around the current exhibition, Pyramids & Sphinxes. Learn about how 19th-century European artists used brush, paint, and cameras to document the ruins of a once glorious empire and how late 20th-century photographers approached monuments that had by then become clichés.

Grab a drink and create luxurious beads using plain paper at this month’s Make & Take.
Dervish: Fri, 3/11
On Friday, March 11, internationally acclaimed band Dervish will perform sublime interpretations of traditional Irish songs. The group is comprised of fiddle, flute, accordion, bodhrán, mandolin, and bouzouki, which act as a compliment to singer Cathy Jordan's bewitching vocals and masterful stage presence.
