    Art of Africa presents more than 60 objects including sculpture, textiles, beaded clothing and jewelry, which broadly represent the creativity and diversity of artistic expression of nearly 30 cultures of sub-Saharan Africa. The exhibition will illustrate the broader cultural context in which these art forms were created and used. Kwaku Ofori- Ansa, curator for the exhibition, is an associate professor of African art at Howard University, Washington, D.C. and was born and raised in Ghana, West Africa. The collection is on loan from the Center for Cross Cultural Communication in Washington, D.C. Worcester native Warren Robbins (1928 – 2008), its founder and director, was also founding director emeritus of the National Museum of African Art, now a branch of the Smithsonian Institution.
