Additional Information

SAUDAÇÃO, a new work by choreographer Samantha Blake Goodman, pays homage to the powerful female lineage and leadership roles of Afro-Brazilian women in Candomblé. The work explores qualities of the orixá Oxum, the sweet river waters, and the orixá Yemanja, the salty ocean waters.


Fowler Out Loud is an evening concert series that invites UCLA students from various disciplines to perform at the museum. Support for Fowler Out Loud comes from the UCLA Office of Residential Life.
