Trip: Fitchburg Art Museum to see exhibit: Moving Objects: African and Oceanic Art
September 28 @ 1:00 pm
The bus departs at 1:00 pm for a trip to the Fitchburg Art Museum to see the exhibit: Moving Objects: African and Oceanic Art. FAM’s exhibition of African and Oceanic Art, recognizes the significance and dramatic visual presence of work from Africa and the Pacific Islands through the exploration of the migrating object. In celebration of the generosity of FAM’s friends, whose donations have shaped the collection, the exhibition tracks each object’s journey to the Museum from its respective point of origin. Moving Objects captures the breadth of work in its collection, juxtaposing some of FAM’s earliest acquisitions, like the Tongan Tapa Cloth donated by Miss Cora Hatch of Fitchburg in 1931, with more recent acquisitions, like the Baining Spirit Mask from the Worcester Art Museum. Some gifted to the museum, some acquired from the artists themselves, the exhibited objects and their stories show how the African and Oceanic collections evolved at the Fitchburg Art Museum. Approximate return: 5:00 pm. Fee: $30 for transportation and admission. Click ‘Register’ in the Events Calendar to sign up or request a paper Trip Sign Up form at the Front Desk and submit it.
