Meet Us There! Member’s Trip: We Wanted a Revolution

Members only, $65

Spend a day with Athenæum members exploring how powerfully twentieth and twenty-first century art can convey messages--political, personal, and communal. We’ll begin the day at the ICA, where Assistant Curator Jessica Hong will guide us on a tour of We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-85. The exhibition, organized by the Brooklyn Museum and coordinated locally by Jessica Hong, examines the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women of color during the emergence of second-wave feminism. After our tour we’ll enjoy lunch in the Seaport before traveling to the National Center of Afro-American Artists in Roxbury. At NCAAA a guide will lead us through the museum’s special exhibitions, including Inmate Ingenuity: The Cell Solace Collection and photographs of Cuba by Carlos Byron.

The fee includes all museum admissions and lunch (entree and soft drink). Participants are responsible for any alcohol purchases and for all travel to and between locations. Contact Hannah Weisman, director of education, at 617-720-7617 or weisman@bostonathenaeum.org, if you would like to carpool.

A full itinerary will be shared with participants a week prior to the trip.
