Film: COLORED FRAMES
A look back at the last fifty years in African American art, Colored Frames is an unflinching exploration of influences, inspirations, and experiences of black artists. Beginning at the height of the Civil Rights Era and leading up to the present, it is a naked and truthful look at often ignored artists and their progenies.

Muhlenberg Dance

In the true liberal arts tradition, the Muhlenberg Dance Program is dedicated to teaching how to think about the art of dance and its connection to the larger world. Students will engage with works of art from throughout the museum by presenting individually choreographed dances which will highlight the dynamic relationship between the performance and visual arts.
