The Drawing Dalls four-hour gallery performance will engage visitors in an unexpected way. Artist and UCSD MFA student Angela Jennings’ thought-provoking piece will explore aspects of identity and the idea of dolls as a reflection of one’s own self. Visitors may experience the performance in progress at any time between 1:00-5:00pm. Jennings will perform within the presence of over 100 handmade African-American dolls made between 1850 and 1940 from the collection of Deborah Neff, along with wonderful works from the exhibition Self-Taught Genius including work by Bill Taylor, Henry Darger and Alice Hudson organized by the American Folk Art Museum, NY.

Visitors may experience the performance in progress at any time between 1:00-5:00pm.
