Join us for an intriguing look at a very unique exhibit, the Asafo Flags from Ghana at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park. This is an exhibition of thirty-seven flags from the West African country of Ghana. A recent donation to Mingei International, these colorful flags dating to the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries feature graphic imagery and appliqued designs on solid cotton grounds. More details on the exhibit can be found on the Mingei website.
The tour will begin with a brief introduction from the Curator and Director of Exhibitions Christine Knoke Hietbrink and continue with an in-depth look at selected works with a Museum docent. This will be followed by a tour of the Museum’s Frances Hamilton White Art Reference Library where Chapter Hospitality Chair Kristi Ehrig-Burgess will discuss how archives and digitization projects relate to the Museum’s collections and Mission. The event is free to all attendees.
Afterwards gather at Panama 66 at the SD Museum of Art next door for a no-host happy hour.
