PriceFree
February 16 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm

Join us in the African galleries for this ArtBreak, where Lamario Williams discusses the historical ways community intersects with art and health in African cultures through symbolism, spoken word, and textiles. Williams is a UAB graduate student earning an MD and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering. He is also the founder of DUBS Foundation, a local nonprofit that provides financial support and opportunities to area youth by promoting scholastic excellence and healthy lifestyle choices.

Join us each month for ArtBreak where Museum curators and community partners lead visitors on a 30-minute exploration in our galleries.

ArtBreaks are presented in honor of Joyce Benington’s twenty five years as a docent at the Birmingham Museum of Art. These programs, which bring curators, educators, artists, and creatives in conversation with the Museum‘s collection and exhibitions, have been generously funded by Joyce’s friends, fellow docents, and members of the Art Focus group, which Joyce has guided through the BMA for nearly two decades.
