Talk: Beaded African Adornment

Mingei Museum, Balboa Park, San Diego

Visual Arts

Join Camille Bethune-Brown, Mingei Curator for a rich discussion on Beaded African Adornment. Beads are central to the lives of all African people, and an integral part of a multilayered communication system across cultural communities as well as a celebration of cultural heritage.

African Adornment is community art where personal touches are infused in each object. You will come away with a deep understanding of the world around us and our shared experience that unites us all.

This discussion coincides with the Museum's exhibition, COLORFUL CULTURE: AFRICAN BEADS and will take place in Mingei's new Theater. Art Break is Mingei's new monthly lunchtime lecture series focused on folk art, craft and design.

This event is free with museum admission.

Museum Admission: Free to $14
