Dear Friends:

I hope that you and everyone close to you are safe and well.

Even though the Museum doors have been closed, the Museum staff has been hard at work increasing access to the Spelman College collection, preparing for our 2020/2021 exhibition season, and planning our 25th anniversary in 2021. Highlights of our fall season include:

  • launching a new web site that will offer a refreshed virtual experience
  • presenting a virtual introduction to Theaster Gates: Black Image Corporation
  • offering our first season of virtual programs

Our focus on Black women artists and commitment to equity and access are more critical than ever. The Museum will remain closed at least through December 31, 2020 and we can’t wait to welcome you back in the months ahead. In the meantime, please stay connected through Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter where we share behind-the-scenes information about artists represented in our collection, upcoming programs, and so much more.

Conjure: A Scentsory Experience with November Nichols
Moved by the ways conjuring appears in Renée Stout’s work, perfumer November Nichols will lead us in a workshop on conjuring that which is within us. Using fragrance and journaling as our able guides, we will explore the essence of our being through our senses.
