Thursday, April 4, 2019 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Join the Chicago Science Writers for a private, guided tour of “Caravans of Gold, Fragments in Time: Art, Culture, and Exchange across Medieval Saharan Africa,” an exhibit at Northwestern’s Block Museum of Art that the Chicago Tribune calls “superb.”
According to the Block: “Caravans of Gold is the first major exhibition addressing the scope of Saharan trade and the shared history of West Africa, the Middle East, North Africa, and Europe from the eighth to sixteenth centuries. Weaving stories about interconnected histories, the exhibition showcases the objects and ideas that connected at the crossroads of the medieval Sahara and celebrates West Africa’s historic and underrecognized global significance.”
We’ll gather for refreshments afterward at a site TBD.
