Feb. 2012: East African Exhibit

East African Headrest
Plans are underway to empty SRAC's whole lecture hall and make it ANOTHER exhibit area for the month of February (Black History Month.) About 350 artifacts to include an actual mud hut will be the new exhibit that will celebrate the earliest tribes of East Africa. The Ordinary Objects Extraordinary People (OOEP) exhibit which has traveled to large cities acrossed the US and Canada is coming to SRAC for the whole month of February.

The first of its kind, this collection conveys the beauty, harmony and mastery of the harsh sub-Saharan environments by the nomadic tribes of Ethiopia, Somalia, Eritrea, Sudan, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.  Bill and Betty Baumann - curators and facilitators of the Ordinary Objects Extraordinary People (OOEP) exhibit will also deliver two presentations during the month about the exhibit and the people that it represents and will also be on hand throughout the month for school field trips which SRAC will offer for free.

Stay tuned for more updates to come!
