My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art. During Ancestral Modern: Australian Aboriginal Art from the Kaplan & Levi Collection, guests will illuminate works in the special exhibition and permanent collection for these engaging tours. This week features a special tour with insight into the exhibition from collectors Robert D. Kaplan and Margaret Levi.
Margaret Levi and Robert Kaplan are both members of the Advisory Committee of the Kluge-Ruhe Collection, a major collection of Australian Aboriginal art housed at the University of Virginia. They have been actively collecting Australian Aboriginal art since 1991.
Free with museum admission. Tour meets in the fourth floor galleries, at the entrance to Ancestral Modern.
