Join Curatorial Assistant Julianne Miao and The Ghost Guild to learn more about the impact of spirituality on art in the United States from the 19th century to today.

In her exhibition, Modern Prophets: Art and Spirituality in America, Miao presents two late nineteenth century photographs that depict spirits and ghosts.

The Ghost Guild will be joining Miao in conversation to share insights into contemporary ghost hunting and the guild’s techniques used to collect data in hopes of eventually proving the existence of spiritual presences.
