Seven years ago in 2016, the Savannah African Art Museum in Georgia opened its doors to provide engaging experiences that educate and start conversations about the power, diversity, and spirituality of African Art. The museum collection is one that was developed over 30 years by a Savannah businessman, private collector, and museum founder, Done Kole, and represents more than 28 African countries and over 180 individual cultures spanning from Guinea to Tanzania. The museum also offers workshops and lecture series.
Now on view at the museum is Between Two Worlds: Connecting the Realms of the Seen and Unseen. This exhibit showcases the interweaving of cross-cultural belief systems, beginning with a Yoruba model and connecting to other traditional cultural practices throughout continental Africa.
Checking out the museum and this exhibit should be worth a side trip for your summer travels to the ATL or Myrtle Beach.
