Audible Artworks: Selected African Musical Instruments

June 25, 2000 – April 8, 2001

African Art Museum
950 Independence Ave., SW
Washington, DC

Location: Sublevel 1

On view is a selection of musical instruments that demonstrate the formal inventiveness of African artists who have created objects that are a delight to both the ears and eyes. A listening station provides sample recordings of music made by instruments similar to those on exhibit. These musical instruments are from the museum's permanent installation and two private collections.
