Art Making in the Lobby: Mummy Mask Making
Thursday and Friday evenings from November 1 through December 30, visitors are invited to create masks in the Grand Lobby using various materials and inspiration from To Live Forever: Egyptian Treasures from the Brooklyn Museum, an exhibition of 119 objects that demonstrate the ancient Egyptian belief system regarding preparation for the life after death on view in the Ingram Gallery through January 8, 2012.
Through mask making, guests can imitate the opulence sought by ancient Egyptians of all economic classes to ensure a better place in the afterlife. This art-making activity in the Grand Lobby is free and open to all visitors.
