Enjoy the creative ingenuity of African artisans, whose work elevates the everyday to the sublime. The exhibits at our National Museum of African Art, inspiring all the objects on these pages, display the finest examples of traditional and contemporary African artists working in all of these mediums—jewelry, textiles, leather and clay. Sales of these works help sustain traditional artforms that might otherwise be lost, and provides income to artisans from Uganda, Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania.
