Event: Picturing Music in The World We Can Imagine: Self-Taught Art from the Collection of the MMFA

Sunday October 15, 2017

Picturing Music in The World We Can Imagine: Self-Taught Art from the Collection of the MMFA
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The World We Can Imagine: Self-Taught Art from the Collection of the MMFA celebrates the innovative media and vibrant expressions found in the Museum’s collection of self-taught art.  Mary Proctor’s Light of the World (painted on a metal door), Yvonne Wells’ Hank Williams Quilt 1, and Bernice Sims’ Church Choir represent the rich music of the South.  Join us in exploring how the artists chose to depict song, joy, workshop, and a famous native son in their work.  The gallery talk will be led by Margaret Lynne Ausfeld, who curated the exhibition, and educator Alice Novak.
