The Museum of the African Diaspora reopens for the first time since the start of the pandemic this October and is celebrating with a free admission Community Day on Saturday, October 23!

With renovations complete to the Museum’s lobby, theater, and gallery spaces, the highly anticipated reopening features a line-up of original exhibitions including first-time solo museum exhibitions of work by two of Africa’s most important contemporary artists working on the international stage today—Ghanaian painter Amoako Boafo and Malawi-born, Johannesburg-based artist Billie Zangewa. In addition, there will be a site-specific installation by San Francisco-based artist Sam Vernon in the newly redesigned lobby; the work of San Francisco multimedia artist Sydney Cain as part of the Museum’s Emerging Artist Program; and a presentation of short films by contemporary African artists curated by Leila Weefur in the newly upgraded theater.

Admission is free. For the health and safety of visitors, advance tickets are required and available in two time blocks at the following links:
