Museum Story

The National Museum of African Art began as a private educational institution in 1964 to promote cross-cultural understanding in the social sciences and arts. Founded by Warren M. Robbins, it was known as the Museum of African Art and located on Capitol Hill in a townhouse that had been the home of Frederick Douglass, the African American abolitionist and statesman. In 1979 the museum became part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world's largest museum and research complex dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge.

    I wear smaller earrings as lobe is stretching and while overweight, my face is smaller. These are beautiful, but they are too large for me. I would like to return them. Thanks.

    Pleased to say that I really love these earrings. I was pleasantly surprised with the weight of them; they're not light in weight but not too heavy either. Love the size and design.

    I think a detailed description regarding artists/craftsmen and place of origin is an important selling point. These were light weight so one doesn't have to worry about ear hole elongation. The bag is a nice touch.
