In Conversation About Community Engagement and CMA

When: Wed., Sept. 27 2017

The Cleveland Museum of Art and Karamu House recently announced a partnership to help Karamu House establish a new public space to archive and showcase valuable memorabilia related to African American theater history, as well as neighborhood and Cleveland history. As part of this new initiative, the organizations plan to scan, digitize and preserve Karamu's storehouse of historic items, artifacts and photos collected over the theater's 102-year history. Tonight at 6 p.m., the Women's Council of the Cleveland Museum of Art hosts its annual evening program in the Gartner Auditorium. In Conversation About Community Engagement and CMA features a discussion between Tony Sias, president and CEO of Karamu House, and Cyra Levenson, director of education and academic affairs at the CMA. Sias and Levenson will discuss their conservation plans and the historical importance of this project and Karamu House itself. Admission is free. (Usmani)
