Customs & Traditions: Visual Investigations into the Art & Artifacts of Africa
This exhibition highlights the art and artifacts of a diverse group of peoples across Africa and the aesthetics and symbolism of their distinct cultures. Comprised of domestic goods, furniture, tools, and weapons, all objects on view tell a story of daily life and ancestral tradition. Ranging from the stealthy hunting weaponry of the Massai lion hunters to the symbolically protective granary doors of the Dogon sculptors, each object holds significance in both its design and use.
Please join us in celebrating these cultures and their works throughout the Spring semester, Monday, February 15th – Friday, May 7th, 2021. Visual Resource Commons & Gallery, Ste. 2109, Fine Arts Building, 2nd floor.
Due to Covid safety protocols our visiting procedures have changed. We are limiting capacity, but small group tours are available via scheduled appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays.
