“Brightest Africa” is a new exhibition opening today, Friday, June 13, at the Museum of Art - DeLand’s Downtown Satellite, at 100 N. Woodland Blvd.
The exhibition, on loan until June 29 from a private collector, will display the contributions of some of the most creative, inventive and ingenious civilizations on Earth. The vibrant collection is a diverse display of art, artifacts and objects of material culture ranging from basic implements made by nomadic hunter-gatherers to sophisticated sculpture, textiles and jewelry made by the artists of more prosperous regions. Included are works from West Africa’s Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria, to East Africa’s Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia.
In celebration of DeLand’s Multicultural Arts Festival, the museum will offer free admission to all galleries at both 100 N. and 600 N. Woodland Blvd. from 10 a.m. Friday, June 13, to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 15.
Also on view at the Museum of Art - DeLand through the summer are the exhibitions “Steve Tobin: Roots”; “Karl Zerbe: Works on Paper”; “Collector’s Choice: Blatt Collection” and “Stephen Althouse: Personal Symbols, Private Totems.” More can be found at the museum’s website at MoArtDeLand.org.
