Spurlock Museum Guild Lecture and Performance Series: Maya Images: 1978 to 1986

Sunday, November 16, 2014
Knight Auditorium, Spurlock Museum, 600 S. Gregory St., Urbana, IL

In celebration of the exhibit Artists of the Loom: Maya Weavers of Guatemala, guest curator Margot Blum Schevill and ethnographic photographer Jeffrey Jay Foxx will present a program of reflection upon images, memories, and knowledge gained in more than three decades of work among the Maya. As Jeffery states: "My mission has been to document the Maya and their way of life, not to turn them into my art form. That said, I tend to show the moments of beautiful light and gesture."

This event is sponsored by the Spurlock Museum Guild Performance and Lecture Series in honor of the World Heritage Museum Guild.
