On February 22, 2013 the Museum unveiled the superb Jemison Collection of African Ceramics in a newly dedicated gallery. The works come primarily from West, Central, and Southern Africa, and were created for utilitarian and ritual use. Visitors will not only appreciate the variety, technological skill and artistry represented in African ceramics, but they can explore the styles influenced by place, the similarities and differences of neighboring cultures, and an object’s role in communication.
