The Womens Council of the Cleveland Museum of Art invites you to its annual evening program. The CMA and Karamu House are joining forces to enable Karamu to create a new public space to archive and exhibit valuable memorabilia related to African American theater history, neighborhood history, and Cleveland history. Join Cyra Levenson, the CMA’s Director of Education and Academic Affairs, and Tony Sias, President and CEO of Karamu House, as they discuss their plans to preserve, digitize, and scan the storehouse of historic items, photos, and artifacts that Karamu has collected over its 102 years of serving the Greater Cleveland community. They will also be talking about community engagement and examining ways in which museums and other institutions can work together to enhance the connection to the public and expand the participation of all.
Free and open to the public.
