AHFES at Cultural Institutions

HEAR ART / SEE MUSIC (EARLY REGISTRATION LOTTERY)
Presented by: Kreeger Museum

Hear Art / See Music is a multidisciplinary artistic investigation centered around The Kreeger Museum's exquisite collection of African Masks. We begin with comparing and contrasting two masks, one from the peoples of present-day Mali, one from the peoples of present-day Guinea. The group then participates in two hands on activities; a drum circle, led by a musician, and a mask-making workshop, led by a visual artist. The curriculum focuses on design, pattern, rhythm, communication, cultural perspective, and form vs. function.
