The Gregory Allicar Museum of Art is excited to host the sixth annual Africa & Ale 2022 event in collaboration with the Africa Center and the Department of Art and Art History!

Free and open to all (21+).

Registration is required! RSVP to Africa & Ale 2022


Join us for this network and community building event to discuss issues of sustainability in Africa while tasting African style beers created by local breweries. This collaborative event is an “end-of-year” celebration that honors the cultures of Africa.

Live music from the Fort Collins MARIMBA group will play during the event, featuring Zimbabwean traditional and contemporary rhythms on custom African marimbas. Also featured is African-inspired beer from three local breweries including Horse & Dragon Brewing Company, Purpose Brewing & Cellars, and Zwei Brewing Co.

Appetizers will be provided along with other light snacks. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.

A $10 cash donation is suggested to help support the Africa Center, which invests in innovative and interdisciplinary research and engagement that cuts across conventional disciplines to address global environmental and sustainability issues in Africa.

The Africa Center, housed in the School of Global Environmental Sustainability, aims to celebrate the accomplishments and ongoing work of those that have research and studies in Africa at Colorado State University and they are almost halfway through their goal of raising $25,000 for the Student Research Fellowship campaign!

This fellowship awards student commitment to African research excellence and impact on the world. The Center has had another wonderful year supporting these activities and looks forward to continued collaboration with those that work towards more sustainable African ecosystems and societies. To contribute to this fund, please reach out to the Africa Center at





GAMA’s galleries will be open during the event, and visitors are welcome to visit the artworks on view in our African Collection gallery. The museum’s African collection was formed through the generous donations of faculty, friends, and alumni, and maintains historical and contemporary works created by artists from across the continent.
