Tribal Art - New Orleans Museum offers overview of African Art

Tribal Works offers this from JacarandaTribal, a blog with a special expertise in African tribal art that we follow -

African Art from the Permanent Collection
Tuesday, April 28, 6-8 p.m.
Curator of African Art William Fagaly will use the Museum's collection to provide educators with a general overview of the arts of
Africa. The objects in the galleries will help to shed light on the religious, social and artistic background of each culture represented. Overall themes within the collection will be highlighted, allowing educators to present the material to their students with ease. Education staff also will discuss classroom activities and suggestions for incorporating African art into a variety of curricula.

Thanks Jacaranda.

Your art is beautiful. I have always admired American Indian art and their heritage.

Great blog.
