Black History Month

Join Krannert Art Museum for SPEAK Café in Rest Lab this month on the theme of rest and wellness in honor of Black History Month! Speak Café stands for Song, Poetry, Expression, Art, and Knowledge. It is an open-mic public performance space at Krannert Art Museum organized and hosted by local artist and poet, Shaya Robinson. Speak Café is a creative space to share your craft, express thoughts, recite poetry, rap, or even show artwork. Bring friends to the former café space in the KAM lobby to listen or to share your art. Children will hear stories and experience Rest Lab.

Rest Lab is a pop-up space for intentional rest in the Contemporary Gallery. Play games, listen to music, spend time with friends, and explore creative ways to unwind. Visit Know Before You Go to see guidelines for visiting the museum. Admission is always free and all are welcome. 

Speak Café is co-sponsored by the Bruce D. Nesbitt African American Cultural Center and Krannert Art Museum.
