African Works in Spotlight

The New Orleans Museum of Art is celebrating the continent that created those traditions in its exhibit Ancestors of Congo Square: African Art in the New Orleans Museum of Art.

The exhibit runs through July 17, and occupies the Ella West Freeman galleries, whose entry is in the back of the museum's great hall. It's here where the traditions are explored and explained, where they're illustrated by wooden and terra cotta sculptures and ceremonial African masks.

The amazing part is that this is only a sampling of the museum's African art collection. The New Orleans Museum of Art last fall released a 376-page book by Scala Publishers of London documenting this collection.
