Workshop: Virtual Art and Mortality
March 9, 2021 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Drawing upon themes from Golden Mummies of Egypt, this two-hour virtual workshop intimately explores death, dying, and life transitions, and it’s actually not morbid at all! Join us to unravel these often-taboo subjects to better understand ancient beliefs around the end of life and embrace an intentional approach to confronting mortality.
For tickets and more information, visit here.
Golden Mummies of Egypt is developed and produced by Nomad Exhibitions. In Raleigh additional support for this exhibition is made possible, in part, by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources; the North Carolina Museum of Art Foundation, Inc.; and the William R. Kenan Jr. Endowment for Educational Exhibitions.
