With fall just around the corner, we’re celebrating the new season with Harvest and Heritage: Native American Family Day at the BMA! Don’t forget: it’s FREE!
The celebration is next Saturday, September 28, 10AM – 3:30PM. We will have art activities, snacks, artist demonstrations and hands-on experiences, storytelling, and some surprises. The artists we have are: Monica Newman Moore (finger twining and cording), Rosa Hall (local Native American foods and history), and Dan Townsend (shell carving and beading). Discover how these artists work, try your hand at their crafts, and explore our new Native American galleries!
We’re doing something new this year by partnering with Aldridge Gardens and Moundville Archaeological Park, whose Native American festivals are Sunday, October 6th and Saturday, October 12th, respectively. Our new partnership, Pathways: Diverse Roads through Native Culture encourages all guests to attend all three events and to enter a drawing to win amazing prizes. Will you begin your trail at the Birmingham Museum of Art?
Please help me spread the word!
See you next Saturday!
