This weekly series brings together local artists, architects, writers, thinkers, musicians at the Center for Public Humanities to discuss their work with the public, every Thursday at 6 pm. A short presentation will be followed by Q&A and a convivial gathering in a fairly intimate setting.
Today: RISD Museum curators, Jan Howard and Gina Borromeo, will share the RISD Museum’s process for deaccessioning a bronze head of an oba from Benin in preparation for its return to Nigeria.
The Conversations Series is funded by the Marshall Woods Lectureship Foundation of the Fine Arts.
