The Global Africa Project—The Museum of Arts and Design


Hola!  I hope all is good with ya!  Just wanted to share that The Global Africa Project opens at The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) tomorrow.  If you are interested in contemporary African art, design and craft then this is the exhibition that you need to see.  Here is a snippet from their site about the exhibit:

Featuring the work over 100 artists working in Africa, Europe, Asia, the United States, and the Caribbean, The Global Africa Project surveys the rich pool of new talent emerging from the African continent and its influence on artists around the world. Through ceramics, basketry, textiles, jewelry, furniture, and fashion, as well as selective examples of architecture, photography, painting, and sculpture…

I think that this would be a perfect outing for the young and old this holiday season.   Instead of running to the shops for Black Friday sales why not take a trip to the museum and binge on some culture.  If you can’t make it then don’t worry the exhibition is running until May 15, 2011.  For more info click here.  Enjoy!
