ARTIST TALK: Lorraine O’Grady

The Brooklyn Museum is one of the many reasons I moved to Brooklyn. I love it.  Every first Saturday of the month the Brooklyn Museum has FREE NIGHT filled with theme events. This month celebrates the rich history and culture of Haiti! Did I say I love this place!

In addition there will be an artist talk with Lorraine O’Grady at 7pm! YIPPPPPY Lorraine O’Grady is one of the many current African American Artist that deals with themes of Diaspora identities, womanhood and family. She truly inspires me and I hope  to be one of the 30 that get to enjoy her talk!  Above is one of the images from  her work titled: Miscegenated Family Album Details below:

Artist Lorraine O’Grady talks about her work  Miscegenated Family Album, the Museum’s featured object for August. Free tickets (30) are available at the Visitor Center at 5 p.m.
