Our Visit to the Brooklyn Museum
On July 27, 2012, we visited the Brooklyn Museum and met their interns. We first played a little ice breaker to get to know each other a little more. Afterwards we went to the Egyptian exhibit and heard a story from 2 interns at the museum. They showed us a sarcophagus, which is what Egyptian mummies were buried in. And they told us that on the back of the sarcophagus. there was a story, which was surprising!
Afterwards we went to an African exhibit in its new space and we got another tour from the curator of the African exhibit, Kevin D. Dumouchelle and gained even more information on the African pieces and how they are how they separated to show the different connects to different countries in Africa. This visit was fun, and it showed us how we need to work, when its our turn to give tours as Youth Ambassadors for the Museum for African Art!
