Go behind-the-scenes with curators Nancy Rosoff and Susan Kennedy Zeller to discover pre-Columbian, historical, and contemporary artworks that embody themes of life, death, fertility, regeneration, and spiritual transformation. Collaborate with educators from all subject areas to develop meaningful connections to classroom curricula.

All K–12 educators are welcome to attend this free event. Participants will receive free Museum passes and teaching materials.
