Join us for a private curatorial tour of the de Young Museum's collection of African Art with Natasha Becker,  the first dedicated Curator of African Art at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Featured in this Duke–exclusive guided tour of the 300 permanent collection objects is a contemporary African art special exhibition titled, Lhola Amira: Facing the Future, which explores ancestry and identity in the African context.   

Guests are encouraged to meet at the de Young Museum Cafe from 3:15 pm – 4:00 pm for a casual no-host coffee and pre-tour chat with Duke alumna Rosie Williams A.B.'16, Major Gifts Officer and first Black development officer at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco to learn more about her expertise in lifting up diverse voices in museums and art philanthropy. The guided tour will begin promptly at 4:00 PM.
