In celebration of Black History Month in February, and in conjunction with our continued focus on bringing cultural and ethnographic experiences to the community, the McClure is hosting the exhibition "Sacred: The Ritual Arts of Africa" this January-March. This special exhibition of West and Central African arts will include carvings and sculptures, masks, and textiles, and we are the only exhibition of this collection in the U.S. The exhibition opens on January 8 and closes March 9. I am happy to schedule special group or class tours, including weekends and evenings.
The McClure will host a special lecture while "Sacred" is on exhibition.
Wednesday, February 21, at 3:30 pm in Wood 100, Dr. David Amponsah from University of Missouri will give a lecture titled "India Power: Imagining India in West Africa." Dr. Amponsah is a historian of religions and Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at MU and specializes in indigenous religion, diaspora, and coloniality in West Africa. His lecture is free and open to the public.
