Create your own project inspired by UMMA's exhibition, Power Contained: The Art of Authority in Central and West Africa, which features power figures—wooden carvings adorned with textiles, animal skin, metal, and beads—from different areas of the continent. UMMA docents will lead a tour of the exhibition followed by a hands-on workshop led by local artist Sophie Grillet. Designed for families with children ages six and up to experience art together. Parents must accompany children.
