National Civil Rights Museum says
The 2015 Association of African American Museums pre-conference workshop is a private art collection tour at the beautiful home of former NBA player, Elliot Perry, and his wife Kimberly. Take a personal tour with the Perrys as they highlight what drove them to shift their focus to contemporary art, recant stories about the artists, their collecting experiences, and what continues to drive their passion. The Perrys have committed themselves to emphasizing the "Emerging Voices" of the last twenty-five years. Represented in the collection is Rashid Johnson, Theaster Gates, Christian Rosa, Kehinde Wiley, Mickalene Thomas, Jennie C. Jones, Hank Willis Thomas, Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Wangechi Mutu, Tony Lewis, Nandipha Mntambo, Nina Chanel Abney, Demetrius Oliver and more. Enjoy a tasteful array of hors d'oeurves and refreshing drinks during your visit. This afternoon's delightful package is a must-do for the art collector, curator, or those who just appreciate fine art.

Depart from the Peabody Hotel at 1PM; return at 4PM. Limited to 40 guests.
Cost: $30/person
