Fortune, Courage, Love: Arts of Africa’s Akan and Kuba Kingdoms from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts

With guidance from Richard Woodward, founding curator of the African art collection at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Piedmont Arts hosts this original exhibition highlighting royal life in Africa through the decorative arts of Africa. Linking history, statesmanship, and tradition, this exhibition will travel the continent with a special focus on comparing the traditions of the Kuba kingdom in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Akan culture in Ghana. Traditional masks, personal jewelry, woven textiles and other regalia bring the customs of African kings to our region.
