From 1906 to 1907, Claribel and Etta Cone traveled with their brother Moses and his wife Bertha on a grand journey around the world, including visits in India, China, and Japan. Join curators Dianna Cameron and Carrie Streeter to learn more about the Cone’s adventures and their influence on each individuals’ view of the modern world and modern art.
Scholars & Scones is a monthly educational program which invites patrons to spend a morning sipping coffee, eating locally-baked goodies, and learning about the latest research, writing, and creativity taking place in our region. There are complimentary breakfast goods from Backstreet Bakery and fresh cups of Hatchet Coffee Co. Dangerfield Blend will be served.

Free for museum members, $5 for non-members.
