Art Guild: Bead Art from Africa

Museum Rietberg

OctArtGuildhalskette rot weissDiscover another art form with Art Guild!  Museum Rietberg's "Bead Art from Africa--The Mottas Collection" presents the creativity and artistry of women artists from southern, eastern and western Africa.  Europe produced glass beads for the African market from the 17th century on, and this exhibition presents old beadworks and the contemporary.  In these masks, jewelry pieces and royal stools, we see vibrant colors and patterns which continue to inspire artists and designers today.  We will tour the exhibit, enjoy lunch at the cafeteria there, and, weather permitting, walk in the Rieterpark.
