Planning for a traveling exhibition, a website, lecture series, a catalog, and educational and public programs examining the presence of Africans in the art of Renaissance Europe.

The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland requests support from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the planning of the international loan exhibition provisionally titled Face to Face: The African Presence in Renaissance Europe. NEH Grant funds are requested to fund focus groups, exhibition advisory committee meeting travel, curatorial travel related to loans and contributions, and an exhibition research assistant position. To reveal the African presence in Renaissance Europe, the exhibition will examine the geographical, historical and social conditions affecting Africans in Europe. It will then offer face to face encounters with the actual individuals affected by these factors -- from slaves to rulers - through the medium of great Renaissance portraiture.
