Sundays in the Museum: Exhibition tour with Brandee Caoba

October 28

2 pm

Join us for a tour of the exhibition, Because It’s Time, led by Brandee Caoba. About her artwork, Spiritus Mundi, Brandee writes, “Approaching this project from a universal perspective, I have come to recognize that we are all living under the same sky. We share an almost identical genetic code–regardless of skin color, hair texture, the color of our eyes, gender, sexual orientation, education, socio-economic background and ethnic or cultural identity. Not only does our genetic coding link us to each other, but it also links us to every other organism on Earth.”

Brandee will talk about her work as well as facilitate a conversation about the exhibition as a whole.

The event is free with the purchase of museum admission.
