Arts of Africa at The Mint

Share |

                           

Recently Gigi and I took advantage of a free admission event at the Mint Museum - Randolph. Among the exhibits that we saw were: "The Genius of Richard Caton Woodville," "The Fashions of Dior, Balmain, Saint Laurent, and more," "American Ceramics," "Threads of Identity: Contemporary Maya Textiles" and Arts of Africa: A collection of art forms showcasing the vast cultural, physical, historical, and religious diversity that can be found across the African continent. We had fun!
                                      



Yes, that's Gigi behind the mask.

I really miss being on adventures with you and GiGi. She is a blessed young lady to have an adventurous Mother. TV watching just want and don't cut it.

Hey MaDear,

This didn't take much effort. This museum is just about within walking distance to us, and it was free! So it was a no brainer.

I know Nashville has some cultural stuff. Go check it out!

That's wonderful.

I' m thinking of developing my art mask design works so as to make it be known by a large public. I need your prayers for that. I may set up a website for that, God willing.
Thank you for sharing that wonderful experience of museum visitation.

Kue,

The exhibit was awesome! We saw artwork from many countries, including Cameroon! I would love to see your art mask designs on a Web site. I'll pray for you to get that done as soon as possible. You are very talented, and I'm sure your work will be well received by the public -- worldwide!

Blessings to you and your family,

Alicia
