Museum of Peoples and Cultures at BYU plans Oct. 6 open house

Multi-cultural groups to perform, tours available

The Brigham Young University Museum of Peoples and Cultures will highlight its recently opened exhibit, “Seeking the Divine: Ritual, Prayer and Celebration,” with multi-cultural performances during an open house Thursday, Oct. 6, from 4-6:30 p.m.

Admission is free. The public is welcome to attend.

Tours of the exhibitions will be given by the student curators who helped design and fabricate the displays. In addition, multi-cultural groups such as BYU's Tribe of Many Feathers will perform, and visitors will enjoy traditional Thai dancing and a special performance from Miss Indian BYU, Yaanibaa Whaley. Refreshments will be served.

“Seeking the Divine,” like all the museum’s exhibitions, is curated by BYU students enrolled in the Certificate in Museum Practices Program offered through the Department of Anthropology. It displays more than 150 artifacts from countries around the world.

The Museum of Peoples and Cultures is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located on the corner of 700 North 100 East in Provo. For more information or to schedule a guided tour, call (801) 422-0020.
