Kick off Collective Imagination with our pre-conference private guided tour at the Whitney Museum of American Art and wind down after the first day of sessions at the American Folk Art Museum. It’s the perfect opportunity to mingle with fellow TMS users and discuss the events of the day.

American Folk Art Museum

We invite you to the CI 2016 Welcome Reception at the American Folk Art Museum. Docents will be on hand between 6:00 and 6:30 p.m. to lead a small private tour* of the exhibition, Mystery and Benevolence: Masonic and Odd Fellows Folk Art from the Kendra and Allan Daniel Collection. Cocktails and appetizers will be served.

“Enigmatic, evocative, and often simply strange, fraternal references are a rich part of contemporary American popular culture…The exhibition explores the fascinating visual landscape of fraternal culture through almost two hundred works of art.”

*The guided tour of the American Folk Art Museum is sold out; however, the collection will be available for viewing during the reception, and docents will be on hand to answer questions.
