If you are interested in getting to know the Riverside Metropolitan Museum a bit better,  join us for our RMA Lecture Series.   We kick off the new season of lectures on Wednesday, October 12th with a special look at the newest exhibit at the Museum, “Rising Above, Entertainment and the Struggle for African American Identity.”  Dr. Norman Towels, a retired local educator and noted collector of African American history is the featured speaker.  Since much of this exhibit is on loan from Dr. Towels, this is a unique opportunity to explore the exhibit and subject.  The presentation starts at 10:00 a.m. in the second floor Museum gallery.  Refreshments will be served at 9:30 a.m.  Admission is free and no reservations are required.

Future lectures include “A Morning at the Heritage House” (November 3rd), “The Ameal Moore Nature Center at Sycamore Canyon Park” (January 4th), “The Museum’s Next Door Neighbor, the First Congregational Church” (February 1st), “Ching Ming, the Chinese Grave Sweeping Ceremony” (March 1st), and “RCC’s Newest  Buildings:  A Tour and Lunch!” (April 5th).  If you would like to be on the email reminder list, send a message to “Volunteers” on the contact page of this website.
