Join us for an interactive storytelling experience as we look, listen, and learn in our exhibition Axé Bahia: The Power of Art in an Afro-Brazilian Metropolis. Families and children of all ages are invited to discover how an ancient African sea goddess brings the gift of night to the land of daylight in How Night Came from the Sea: A Story from Brazil (1994). After the reading, a Museum Educator will lead families on a brief exploration of artworks related to the story.
Story Time is a short format, informal storytelling program facilitated by Fowler educators at 11:30 am on the first and third Friday of each month. This event is free, no reservation required. Meet in the Fowler’s Lobby.
Parking available in UCLA Lot 4, 398 Westwood Plaza, directly off Sunset Blvd | $12/day
About the Exhibition
Axé Bahia: The Power of Art in an Afro-Brazilian Metropolis, explores the distinctive cultural role of the city of Salvador, the coastal capital of the Brazilian state of Bahia and an internationally renowned center of Afro-Brazilian culture. Featuring more than 100 works from the mid-20th century to the present, including a stunning array of sculpture, painting, photography, video, and installation art, the exhibition explores the complexities of race and cultural affiliation in Brazil, and the provocative ways in which artists have experienced and responded creatively to prevailing realities of Afro-Brazilian identity in Bahia.
