Eye Hand Mind: Selections fro the Africa Meets Africa Project @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center
Aug 23 – Oct 12 all-day
Eye Hand Mind: Selections fro the Africa Meets Africa Project @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center |  |  |

Exquisite objects, made for everyday use according to inherited styles of beadwork, weaving, pottery and homestead painting, reveal an astonishing integrity of design and innovation with contemporary materials and forms. And yet, the iconic master artists of rural southern Africa, national treasures, share great concern that their skill might not survive beyond their own generation.
Africa meets Africa brings these artists’ knowledge into the classroom with unique arts-skills learning methodology, integrating visual arts, history and mathematics. For example, students do geometry with their hands, as they make beadwork and weave according to inherited southern African styles. In this exhibition cultural expression is contextualized in relation to past and present needs.

CLOSING RECEPTION:
Thursday, October 6, 6 – 8 p.m.
Meet visiting guests Helene Smuts, founder of Africa Meets Africa non-profit education project, and Jackie Scheiber, Africa Meets Africa curriculum specialist and math educator.
