Public programs and events--including both family-oriented and scholarly programs--will be offered throughout the year to accompany our exhibitions. Admission to all of our programs is free and all visitors are welcome. Check back for updates!

Join us for our next Conversations on Culture: Diaspora lecture in the Global Museum. We are fortunate to host Francesco Spagnolo, Curator of the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life at UC Berkeley, who will speak about his current "mapping diasporas" project. Spagnolo's research has culminated in a new digital humanities course, series of documentary films, and exhibition that reveals the compelling personal stories of migration and dispossession that are often embedded within museum objects. Reception to follow.
