Ritual and Rebirth: African Masks from the West Guinea Coast
January 13, 2003 through February 23, 2003
Robert L. Ringel Gallery, Purdue Memorial Union
These association masks come from the Poro and Soweii societies. The masks are integral to ceremonial rites of passage, in which young men and women are indoctrinated into the social responsibilities of adulthood.
The exhibit is being developed by art history students in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, under the supervision of Dr. David Parrish.
