Eye Hand Mind: Selections from the Africa @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center (WVC: Aug 25-Oct 12)

 
Exquisite objects, made for everyday use according to inherited styles of beadwork, weaving, pottery and homestead painting, reveal an astonishing integrity of design and innovation with contemporary materials and forms. And yet, the iconic master artists of rural southern Africa, national treasures, share great concern that their skill might not survive beyond their own generation.
Africa meets Africa brings these artists’ knowledge into the classroom with unique arts-skills learning methodology, integrating visual arts, history and mathematics. For example, students do geometry with their hands, as they make beadwork and weave according to inherited southern African styles. In this exhibition cultural expression is contextualized in relation to past and present needs.
