Join members of the CMC community as we experience the newest exhibition at the de Young Museum, Kehinde Wiley's "An Archaeology of Silence." Wiley investigates the iconography of death and sacrifice in Western art, tracing it across religious, mythological, and historical subjects. In "An Archaeology of Silence", Wiley uses portraits and sculptures to depict how the senseless deaths of men and women around the world are transformed into a powerful elegy of resistance.

Kehinde Wiley, a Los Angeles native and New York based artist, is known for his large scale portraits that portrays people of color in the traditional settings of Old Master paintings. In 2018, he was selected by President Barack Obama and became the first African-American artist to paint an official U.S. Presidential portrait for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.

For those who are interested, the group will plan on eating lunch together at the café afterwards.

$10 per person - includes admission to the exhibit and a $5 donation towards student scholarships.
