MOSAIC: Bus Boycotts - Rosa Parks and Beyond
Anatomy of a Museum: The Art and Science of Curation
Pathways students are invited to the Yale Center for British Art for a inside peek into museum curation. How does a museum curate an exhibition? Who are the people involved and what do they do? How is an exhibition designed and how are collections arranged and acquired? During this event, students will work closely with museum curators and educators and have an exclusive tour of the William Hunter exhibition on display now at the YCBA. To register, visit: onhsa.yale.edu/museum
Dining with the Dramat: The Little Prince
The Yale Dramatic Association, also known as the Yale Dramat, is the second oldest college theater company in the country. Students joined members of the Dramat as they discussed their current production of The Little Prince and got a behind-the-scenes glimpse into theater production.
The Life and Legacy of Frederick Douglass
High school students and members of the New Haven community learned about abolitionist, speaker, philosopher, and author Frederick Douglass with Yale Professor David W. Blight - who recently published the most celebrated biography on Frederick Douglass in nearly 30 years. Students left this event with a deeper understanding of the extraordinary and complex life of one of the greatest orators in American history.
Secret Meanings of Modern Middle Eastern Art
Why do we know so little about modern art from the Middle East? What does this art tell us about the culture, politics, society of this fascinating part of the world? Students and families from the New Haven community joined Yale Greenberg World Fellow, Barjeel Art Foundation Founder and Lecturer Sultan Al Qassemi for a wondrous investigation of the political undertones of iconic artworks of the 20th century in the Arab world.
