Ceremonies in Circles

Ceremonies in Circles

Experience the vivid roots of West African cultures! Visit the "Ceremonies in Circles" exhibit to explore traditional masks, garments, woodcarvings, and objects related to special rituals and community celebrations. The exhibit provides insights into the West African traditions of masquerade as well as artistic interpretations of old wisdom and new meanings. Discover messages that connect people to their ancestors and cultural heritage and interpret concerns for land protection and love for one another.

Most featured artworks were created by artists in our region, with others acquired from private collections. Discover works by renowned artists Ira L. Bond, Melvin Deal, Boubacar Diabete, Moussa Diabete, Maxwell Kofi Donkor, Arthur Driscoll, and Richard Robinson Jr.

"Ceremonies in Circles" is on display through Sunday, December 29, 2024, in the Down Jersey Folklife Center at WheatonArts in Millville, NJ. Plan your visit at wheatonarts.org.
