The first major exhibition of West African art at the Saint Louis Art Museum in more than 15 years, Senufo: Art and Identity in West Africa is a stunning collection of masks, figures, and other objects from three countries in West Africa that reveals the amazing diversity of art that scholars and collectors typically label as Senufo.

The lecture will take place on Friday, June 26 at 11:00 am in the Museum’s Farrell Auditorium. Although the event is free, seating is limited and tickets are required for admission so we suggest securing them in advance. Tickets can be obtained in-person at both of the Museum’s Information Centers, or through MetroTix, which charges a service fee of $3 per ticket.
