4:00 p.m. Arizona time (7:00 p.m. Eastern)

In this discussion, scholars from the National Museum of the American Indian, Asian Pacific American Center, and Smithsonian American Art Museum explore how artists integrate the ancient world within their contemporary artistic practice. In so doing, their works update and create new meanings, allowing them to pass on complex and layered cultural interpretations to future generations.
