Scholars & Scones: Seeing the World with the Cones

From 1906 to 1907, Claribel and Etta Cone traveled with their brother Moses and his wife Bertha on a grand journey around the world, including visits in India, China, and Japan. Join curators Dianna Cameron and Carrie Streeter to learn more about the Cone’s adventures and their influence on each individuals’ view of the modern world and modern art.
