Uncomfortable Art Curator’s Tour | "In Their Time"

October 6, 2024, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (US Central)

Brunnier Art Museum, Scheman Building

Join University Museums curators, Allison Sheridan and Adrienne Gennett, to explore art exhibited throughout In Their Time that can make visitors and museums staff uncomfortable because of the imagery, material, or provenance. Take the opportunity to ask questions about why these objects can be seen as problematic and how museums today work for more transparency in their exhibitions.
