Friday’s come and gone and I think it’s safe to say that it was a successful night! Thank you to EVERYONE who showed up for Prof. Appiah’s talk (We had a full house in Sharpless which was absolutely fantastic!) and later at the opening! Another big thanks to the Hurford Humanities Center staff and Matthew at CFG for working up to the very last minute, so that we could have the best exhibition and opening possible. Last but definitely not least, thank you to our special guests for the evening, Prof. Kwame Anthony Appiah, and artists Fariba Alam, Gonkar Gyatso and Daniel Kojo Schrade! thank you thank you thank you!
The opening’s ended but things have just started! Gonkar Gyatso arrives again on Tuesday, March 23 for an artist’s conversation followed by our exciting International Food Festival. So, bring your questions and appetite -should be a great time!
Kwame Anthony Appiah will be coming to speak on the night of our opening!
I’m hoping the Haverford community will begin to see that Mapping Identity is not just another show at CFG but an exhibit that incorporates so many ideas that are discussed in our classrooms – History of Art, Poli Sci, Anthropology, Sociology, etc – - Appiah talks about ideas we can all relate to as members of this interesting human race we are part of in the 21st century…
