Free Museum Excursion, Oct. 17th!

This is the first of two “museum excursions” that the University of Maryland’s Certificate in Museum Scholarship and Material Culture (MSMC) is hosting this year to connect the University community with surrounding cultural organizations in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

On Saturday, October 17,  from 2-4 PM come to the opening event of the Prince George’s African American Museum and Cultural Center’s (PGAAMCC) NOW Photography exhibition. Now is a contemporary photography exhibition that celebrates present-day life and culture of Prince George’s County. This collection of images, by professional and amateur photographers, offers a sweeping vision of the people, places, events, and sprawling landscapes that define this highly influential and diverse county that also boasts the most affluent and educated predominately African American population in the United States. Come find out what this community-centered museum is all about.

The MSMC is providing free transportation from the University of Maryland College Park campus to this event. If you are interested in transportation, RSVP to Sarah Janesko at Transportation is limited and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Details about where to meet will follow.
