Mint Museum Randolph


The arts of Africa come from fifty-two nations, diverse ecosystems, varied political systems ranging from great kingdoms to small bands without chiefs, many social settings from initiations to the shrines of deities and the regalia of leaders, and dozens of value systems and religious beliefs. Thus, there are many different Africas, and consequently, great diversity in the arts and their histories.  Art in the Many Africas features the best of the Mint Museum's permanent collection, supplemented by generous loans from private collections. This exhibition concentrates on key forms in African art such as masks, ceramics, and utilitarian objects, and themes in African art including symbols of power, religion, and mother and child. This exhibition is organized by The Mint Museum in collaboration with guest curator Herbert Cole.
