African Art: Selections from the Permanent Collection showcases the University Art Museum’s largest non-western holdings. With examples of sculpture, jewelry, textiles, printmaking and photography, both traditional and contemporary arts reaffirm African artistic strength. Some art on display serves daily utilitarian functions including body adornment while other works restate religious, social or political order and power. This exhibition demonstrates creative use of materials, complex motifs and exceptional workmanship, all of which reflect generations of African traditions and cultures.
Opening Reception: Friday, October 10th, 6-8 p.m. Gallery talk at 6:00 p.m. with Dr. David Riep
