What do the visual arts reveal about African-based religions and practices among the diaspora and in the Americas? In turn, how do those religions and practices influence black artists, past and present? What place does Hartford have in Afrocosmologies? Join us for a morning of facilitated conversation as we dive into these questions, explore the exhibition Afrocosmologies: American Reflections, and dialogue with neighbors and scholarly experts.
Lunch will be provided with free registration.
