Event Navigation

Please join the African American Museum in Philadelphia for a FREE art talk exploring themes from our fall exhibition, Gardens of the Mind: Echoes of the Femine View.

Gardens of the Mind: Echoes of the Feminine View features five black women artists whose work explores spiritual cultivation and memory through their artistic practice. By using large scale installation, sculpture, painting, photography and printmaking, artists Barbara Bullock, Martha Jackson Jarvis, E.J. Montgomery, Joiri Minaya and Glynnis Reed examine links between history, memory, and the natural environment. The artists consider our relationship with nature and how the mind itself is a field, which is developed and nurtured to promote creative, spiritual and intellectual growth.

This talk will include all of the Gardens of the Mind exhibited artists and will be moderated by Philadelphia-based artist, academic and activist, Li Sumpter.
