Join Kwasi Asare for an evening of traditional kente cloth weaving on Thursday, Oct. 9, at 5 p.m. The artist will share his story of how he learned to weave. The United Nations commissioned Asare to create a piece for the 50th anniversary of Ghana’s independence, which was fitting, as Asare’s father wove the first kente cloth in an independent Ghana in 1960. Today, the younger Asare continues the tradition from his weaving mill in Ghana. Participants will weave on small looms after the demonstration. The Museum Café is open from 5 to 8 p.m. for tapas with jazz at 6 p.m. Reservations for the demo are encouraged online.
