Late Thursday: The Body Eclectic

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Feel the pulse, rhythm, and spirit of the body come alive during an evening of exploration inspired by the breadth of the Museum’s diverse collection of historic and contemporary African art on Thursday, January 18 from 6 to 9 pm. Admission to Late Thursday is free and light refreshments will be served.

Highlights include:
• Pick up a brush and body paint live nude models in a design inspired by our African collection with artist Charly Dominguez.
