Image: The New York Times. Inside an Iconic Journey: The National Museum of African American History & Culture Thursday, September 21, 2017 6:308pm ICI Curatorial Hub 401 Broadway, Suite 1620 FREE and open to the public On the cusp of the first anniversary of the National Museum of African American History & Culture in D.C., Dr. Avery Willis Hoffman, a leading member of the exhibit and media design team, will present an insiders view of the making of the museum. How do you create a sustainable 21st century institution dedicated to American history as seen through the lens of African American history? What are the foundational stories and essential people and events that must be covered? What are the key artifacts that must be displayed? How do you shape a visitor’s journey through the building? Avery Willis Hoffman will explore these questions, and how these inquiries shaped the design process and ultimately the institution you can walk through today. This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with AVERY in the subject line. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
