African Art from Colorado State University Collections focuses on permanent collection holdings in African Art. The Department of Art’s African collection was formed through the generous donations of faculty and alumni. The pieces come primarily from the countries of Mali, Nigeria, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Republic of Benin, The Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya. The collection represents numerous cultural lifestyles including pastoral, agrarian, and royal; a diverse use of materials and motifs; and multiple artistic conventions, ideal for introducing viewers to the rich and complex artistry of Africa.
