2717 - African Art: Seeking Meaning Across Cultures
Learn the intricacies and breadth of this fascinating and rich realm of art and the culture it resonates with from one of the foremost and passionate collectors of African Art in the region (30 pieces from her collection are currently on display at the North Carolina Museum of Art). This is an unusual opportunity to go far beyond the superficialities of casual observation of African Art by understanding in depth the expressed themes of: Symbols of Leadership and Power; Masks and the Masquerade; Shrines and Altars; Mother and Child; Divination Across Cultures; and Objects of Daily Use. Seven classes will be at the NCMA enriched by access to the collections there. Additional highlights include a tour of the Ackland Museum's African Art collection (which also displays pieces from the instructor’s collection) guided by Dr. Victoria Rovine, Professor of Art History, UNC-Chapel Hill, as well as a visit to the instructor’s astonishing collection in her home. A final class session will be a panel discussion including NCMA’s new curator of African Art, Dr. Amanda Maples, and expert African Art dealer Charlie Jones.Lecture (plus Questions)Facilitated Discussion
