Night At…Museo de las Americas’ “Rhythm & Ritual”

CBCA members are invited to request two complimentary tickets to an exclusive evening at Museo de las Americas’ “Rhythm and Ritual: Music of the Ancient Americas” exhibition.

Museo de las Americas is collaborating with the Denver Art Museum to bring to you a new and exciting exhibition, curated by Jared Katz of the Denver Art Museum. Explore 80 ancient musical instruments that date from between 2500 BCE to 1550 CE. This show analyzes the contexts in which music was performed throughout the ancient Americas, celebrates the legacies that ancient music continues to have, and invite guests to play 3D printed replicas of the original musical instruments on display.

“At times, the past can appear to be static, as the objects are seemingly condemned to sit in silence, removed from the context in which they were regularly used. In reality each object has a rich life history. “Rhythm & Ritual” celebrates the life history of these instruments by populating people’s perception of the past with sound and music, helping museum visitors better understand the lived experiences of ancient people while simultaneously creating a connection to culture and music that endures today.” – Jared Katz PhD, Curator, Mayer Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow for Art of the Ancient Americas at the Denver Art Museum
