Object Lesson | Keun Ho Peter Park | Fri. March 1, 2019 | 6 – 6:30 pm | The Center for Art in Wood Museum Collection
Object Lesson is a monthly First Friday speaker series that will open wide the cases of the Center’s Museum Collection through the perspectives of individuals from the worlds of art, design, performance, community activism, education, and more, creating fresh dialogues about the Collection and its objects. The series invites the public for an up-close and personal experience in an informal, discursive setting that will encourage exploration of the many treasures in the Collection.
