The Brick Store Museum welcomes guest curator Claudy Boy, a Maine resident, who is presenting her private collection of “Western African Arts & Culture,” through the end of March at the Museum. Boy was born and raised in Western Africa, and immigrated to the United States (and ultimately Maine) during adulthood. She was the daughter of French colonialists in Western Africa, and grew up to be a humanitarian and artist.
Boy will present a talk on her artwork and experiences growing up and teaching in Gabon and Cote d’Ivoire on Saturday, February 22nd at 2pm in the Museum galleries. Admission to the program is free, with donations to the Museum’s 2020 Annual Fund greatly appreciated. Refreshments provided, including traditional West African lemon cake and fizzy drink.
This exhibition highlights the Museum’s Free February program, which offers free admission to the exhibitions for the entire month of February. In addition to the Western African Art exhibition, Patterns, a history of pattern in clothing; and Kennebunk’s Cultural Landscape are currently on view for visitors to explore.
