Originating Calendar Krannert Art Museum Calendar

KAM is excited to open its newly designed gallery devoted to the arts of Africa. Visitors will be welcomed by a completely renovated space with a new interpretive framework, casework, lighting, layout, and entranceways into the gallery. The thematically organized installation is inspired by the idea that objects can ''tell'' multiple stories, not only about themselves but also about the broader social contexts and often fraught global histories through which they have journeyed. Indeed, as a 21st century museum, KAM is committed to raising awareness about the ''life histories'' of African artworks, as well as the museum''s role in shaping our understanding of those histories.
