Museums in Africa and the United States

Dr. Boureima Diamitani, executive director of the West African Museum Programme, will join Dr. Maxwell L. Anderson for a conversation about colonial collections and post-colonial communities, conserving cultural and art history, and the impact of civil wars on cultural heritage preservation.

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow (9 October) in the Deer Zink Events Pavilion of the Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Road, Indianapolis. It's open to the public at no charge as part of the Conversation Series: Museums in a Global Context (in honor of the 125th anniversary of the IMA).
