Curator Talk: “Pacific Sounds” with Paul R. Davis

Join Paul R. Davis, Curator of Collections, in the gallery for a discussion about the aural and visual power flutes, drums, and other sound-making objects on view. As part of the program, he will share sound recordings of the instruments and archival images of performances.
