AFRICAN ART @ HITE ART INSTITUTE

Schneider Hall Galleries

louiville.edu/art

Some of the oldest civilizations and cultures derived from the rich and vast continent of Africa. As a result, the nations therein are home to some of the most ancient and long-running cultures and art. In 2012, Margaret and Frederick Merida donated a substantial collection of African art to the Hite Art Institute at the University of Louisville, and this summer, for the first time, it is available for public viewing. The pieces, largely sculpture-based, come from nations ranging from Nigeria to Cote d’Ivoire to Sierra Leone to every soccer fan’s favorite, Ghana. The collection of 40 works is available for everyone to view free of charge starting at the reception on Friday from 5:30-7:30 p.m. —Ian Ording
