Peace, Power and Prestige: Metal Arts in Africa

March 17 – September 27  

This exhibition explores the roles of metal objects in sustaining, unifying and enhancing life in African communities, while demonstrating the aesthetic and expressive power of metal arts. Peace, Power and Prestige includes a diverse range of iron, brass, bronze, gold, copper, silver, and alloyed works created by artists in West, Central, South and East Africa, between the 12th and 21st centuries. The selected objects derive from the Harn Museum collection and private collections, most notably the Drs. John and Nicole Dintenfass collection.
