The Newark Museum African Art Collection Reinstallation Project

Planning of the reinstallation of the Newark Museum's collection of African art.

The Newark Museum requests a $40,000 grant from the NEH to help support the planning activities for a major reinstallation of the Museum's historic and extensive African art collection. The new installation will explore both traditional and contemporary art works through an exciting cross-cultural thematic approach that aims to offer audiences a fresh perspective on the arts of this diverse and dynamic continent. Presenting the works through the lens of humanities themes ensures that the installation is more accessible to visitors and that audiences can readily connect to the art works on personal, cultural, social, political and ideological levels. Essential to the reinstallation will be the convening of teams of nationally and internationally renowned scholars whose expertise and creative thinking will help shape the content and focus of the new installation to best meet the educational and cultural needs and interests of the Museum's diverse audiences.
