"Reinstalling the NCMA Permanent African Gallery: A Professor's Perspective"

For the past five years, Dr. Elizabeth Perrill has included curatorial work at the North Carolina Museum of Art (NCMA) in Raleigh as part of her public facing research. The process of curating the permanent African art collection and collaborating on brand new gallery design, didactic styles, and educational spaces with NCMA staff have brought fresh perspectives to this UNCG professor's research and teaching. Come hear about the new gallery installation that launched July 1st. WAM talk attendees can visit the NCMA website to learn about the September 23rd African art festival and full reinstallation events. 

Held in conjunction with the 2017 UNCG Faculty Biennial exhibition on view Sept 2-Dec 3, 2017.
