Museums and Race
@ Chicago Cultural Center
78 E Washington St, Chicago, IL 60602
Opening Sunday, April 30th, from 2PM - 5PM
The recent national conversation about race has included voting, prisons, and policing. Add to that list museums, which have begun to contend with histories of racism—in society and in their own institutions—including reflections in the very collections they’ve acquired or manage. Join David Pilgrim of the Jim Crow Museum, Carlos Tortolero of the National Museum of Mexican Art, and Chip Colwell of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the author of Plundered Skulls and Stolen Spirits, for a conversation about changing curatorial practices and efforts at community engagement.
