Museums and the Travel Ban
May 16, 2017
6 - 8:30 pm
Davis Museum, Wellesley, MA
Presented by the Exhibits PAG
Registration deadline: May 12, 2017
In February, the Davis Museum at Wellesley College responded to the President's first travel ban with Art-Less. Approximately 120 objects created by or donated by immigrants to the United States were draped or removed.
Join the Exhibits PAG at the Davis for a panel discussion inspired by Art-Less. Panelists Roya Amigh, Somé Louis, Pampi, Anni Pullagura, and Claire Whitner will discuss the Davis's initiative and consider museums' roles and responsibilities in politics. There will be time for networking following the meeting, where we can continue the conversation over drinks.
Registration Fee: $15 ($5 for Wellesley College Students and Employees)
