Exhibition Opening: Africa: A View from the Field

February 19, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Africa exhibition opened in 1993 as part of the Field’s centennial celebration. Now, some of its creators—current and former Field Museum staff—are reuniting and taking a look back.

Join this online panel discussion to hear their firsthand experiences creating the Africa hall, as well as reflections and insights today. A Q&A will follow.

Paired with the live conversation is a vintage WTTW documentary titled Africa: A View from the Field. This film gives a behind-the-scenes look at the exhibition’s planning, development, and production. Once you register for the event, you’ll receive a link to the documentary. Please watch it before attending the virtual event on February 19.

Space for this virtual event is limited. Sign up in advance to reserve your spot.
