Today at the Museum
Thursday, March 26, 2015
Every Thursday from 10:30–11:00 a.m. Join us in Studio Play for Art Stories, a weekly storytime program that combines children's books, artworks from the CMA collection, and hands-on activities. Designed for children ages 2 to 5 and their favorite grown-up to participate in together, Art Stories is led by museum educators.
Explore the special exhibition Senufo: Art and Identity in West Africa with our docents. Tour ticket required.
This exhibition, comprised primarily of work from the museum’s collection, examines some of the ways photography has been used to construct identities, whether fact or fiction.
An exhibition of 15 botanically inspired luxury textiles drawn from CMA’s exemplary collection.
This exhibition will demonstrate how contemporary artists utilize printmaking techniques to express their ideas.
"Music/Video" explores the various ways in which artists have used music to change or enhance the various meanings of video art.
Fine and distinctive forms of sculpture eventually classified as Senufo attracted the attention of art dealers, collectors, and artists in Europe and North America early in the 20th century, a time when people on both continents began evaluating objects from Africa as “art” rather than ethnographic artifacts.
Several 16th- and 17th-century prints and drawings of occult imagery will provide visual context for Rosa’s images while underscoring his originality regarding the traditional iconography of witches and magicians found in prints circulating throughout Europe at the time.
A selection of about 60 drawings and prints from the museum's permanent collection will explore the various ways in which music and music-making have been represented in Europe and the United States from the 15th through the 20th century.
