We begin the exhibit year with one of UC’s distinguished professors, also one of the founding members of the gallery. Original masks, cultural meaning and masquerading traditions provide a view into pre and post contact African and South Pacific cultural traditions with a walk-through environment rich in textures, colors and styles.
Join Professor Gotwald at the reception and collector’s talk on Sept. 6 from 4:30 - 6:30, as well as a Lunch Hour Series talk on September 22. Plan to share college memories as well as collection and travel adventure stories with Professor Gotwald during Alumni’s Homecoming Weekend events. Classroom participation in the gallery with the collector is available by appointment.
