Smithsonian National Museum of African Art: Exhibitions-The Art of the Personal Object
This page from the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art site is called The Art of the Personal Object. This exhibition celebrates the creativity of African artists who have made utilitarian objects of great beauty. Made to fulfill a specific function, each object was also skillfully conceived to provoke visual and tactile delight. Collectively, these are objects that were meant to be both used and seen.
