African Sculpture from the New Orleans Museum of Art
February 19–May 11, 2008
Resonance from the Past consists of nearly 100 works from the New Orleans Museum of Art's extensive collection of African art. The exhibition highlights works from Central and West Africa and includes ancestral masks and figures, musical instruments, and ceramics, as well as fabric and beadwork costumes. This exceptional selection has been touring the country since 2005 while the African galleries at NOMA have been undergoing extensive renovation. The exhibition was on view last year at the National Museum of African Art of the Smithsonian Institution.
