International Museum Day Forum: Museums and Contested Histories
Thu, May 18, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
In honor of International Museum Day 2017, six museums across Miami are coming together to discuss an issue that faces nearly all historic and cultural institutions: how do we present a contested past in the context of a challenging present?
Bring an open mind and meet us at the historic Vizcaya Village for a thought-provoking presentation of ideas.
Join us at 6:00p.m. for an optional guided tour of Vizcaya Village. Spots are limited, so please email Rebecca.Peterson@vizcaya.org to reserve yours!
