Newark Museum Beaded Prayer Project

The Newark Museum & Women’s Association of NJPAC

Invite You…

Beaded Prayers Project
A special summertime lunch & workshop
at The Newark Museum
Monday, July 28, 11 am – 2 pm

As a special friend of The Newark Museum and The Women’s Association of NJPAC, it is our pleasure to invite you to participate in this once–in–a–lifetime event. The Newark Museum is now hosting a wonderful exhibition, The Beaded Prayers Project, a collaborative artwork celebrating both individual creativity and the power of collective artistic expression inspired by artist Sonya Clark

Based upon amulet traditions in Africa and throughout the world, the beaded prayers are made by women of diverse backgrounds and of all ages, representing 35 countries.
Sonya Clark will make a special visit to The Newark Museum and conduct a Beaded Prayers Workshop on Monday, July 28 from 11 am to 2 pm. including a light boxed lunch and materials for a modest ticket fee of $25 per person.

You’ll also enjoy seeing the exhibit on view, meeting Ms. Clark, and participating in her hands–on international project by making two of your own “beaded prayers,” one to keep and one that becomes part of the international exhibition. All are welcome; artistic skills are not required for this wonderful workshop, and prayers are either kept personal or can be shared. What a lovely and unique way to spend a summer afternoon!

Co–sponsored by The Newark Museum and the Women’s Association of NJPAC, we hope that you’ll join your friends from greater Newark’s cultural, philanthropic and civic communities by attending this very special experience. Participation is limited to 125 and will be confirmed upon receipt of payment. To make your reservation, please call Donna Patt at 973–596–6559.
