Border Crossings: This and Other Worlds

This three-day program of talks, performances, and installations takes inspiration from global practices of honoring those who are no longer with us—e.g., El Dia de Los Muertos (the Mexican “Day of the Dead”), the Buddhist and Taoist “Ghost Festival” of Zhong Yuan Jie, the Christian “All Souls Day,” and Qingming or “Tomb Sweeping Day,” a traditional Chinese celebration.

First Wednesdays Jazz in the Gallery
November 7, 6 pm

Museum admission and gallery programs are free from 6–8 pm on the first Wednesday of every month. Visitors may tour the exhibition, revel in live jazz curated by musician Gene Perla, enjoy free drinks, and participate in a conversation related to the exhibition. This week Patricia Llosa, a Jungian analyst, will lead a discussion on objects and emotion from a psychoanalytical perspective. Learn more.
