About This Event

Join us for a docent-led talk and get a fresh look into a featured object that is on view in one of our permanent exhibitions.  At each of these 15-minute talks visitors will hear incredibly big stories about a big object and experience the infinite possibilities of Afrofuturism.

About this Program:  From the era of slavery to the present day, African Americans have re-imagined the futures and possibilities of black people across the globe through the dynamic lens of Afro-Futurism.  I Go To Prepare A Place For You, by fiber artist Bisa Butler, is based upon a portrait of underground railroad conductor and abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Learn what the artwork reveals about Tubman’s complexity as a person, including her African ancestry, bravery, and legacy as an agent of change.
