Imagine Africa was open from September 18, 2011 through September 2, 2018.
How do you imagine Africa? Do you see it as the home of powerful nations? Do you think of intricately carved masks or fine art? Maybe you’re interested in the peoples living in Africa today.
Imagine Africa with the Penn Museum is a special exhibition investigating your thoughts. Visitors will see a small selection from the Penn Museum’s extraordinary African collection, and are asked for their feedback on what they see. Community groups are invited to give us more detailed feedback. In this way, we will form a picture of what most visitors want to know about the vast continent of Africa. With this feedback, the museum is planning a re-installation of the Africa Galleries.
Join the discussion!
Give us your feedback to help inform the development of the new Africa Galleries.
