4/19 Community Day at MOAD

Posted by novoscene on April 19, 2008

Since it opened in downtown San Francisco 3 years ago, the Museum of the African Diaspora has proved to be a great addition to the city’s downtown museum district. It’s historical exhibits-ranging from traditional quilts to Ethiopian art retrospectives-provide access to works and subjects not often seen in traditional museums and galleries, while more modern works like Carrie Mae Weems’ The Louisiana Project and a recent survey of contemporary African Art stand up to works found at the nearby SF MOMA and Yuerba Buena Center.
Today the museum is opening it’s doors for free and offering a day of family fun and events including tapas tastings and jewelry and textile making classes. There’ll also be West African drumming by Oakland’s Bantaba Ensemble, performances by Mamadou and Vanessa – Mali Blues trio, and the Prescott Circus Theater’s youth drumming stilt walkers. Bring the kids and get some culture.
