The Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts (TASCA) is pleased to welcome Felton Eaddy's "I Love Africa" Traveling Museum in celebration of Black History Month 2006. The highly-acclaimed collection will be featured at the Center from Wednesday, February 22 through Friday, February 24, 2006, and will be open during the center's working hours from 10:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Please call the Center for precise times and schedules at (404) 298-4222.
The "I Love Africa" Traveling Museum is designed to lead students of all ages and abilities on a unique trip to Africa, through the sharing of the continent's cultures' stories, poems and songs, alongside authentic African artifacts. This insightful display includes handcrafted stools and textiles from the Ashanti people of West Africa, Gullah Baskets, masks, dolls, musical instruments from Zimbabwe and other fascinating cultural art pieces -- all exhibited in a colorful display.
Felton Eaddy's time-honored "I Love Africa" Traveling Museum maintains a 125-piece art collection, of which as many as 40 works are shared with students per visit when a field trip to a museum can prove either too costly or too time-consuming. Students will be invited and are encouraged to handle selected artworks. A slide component may also be made available by consultation with Mr. Eaddy.
The Center and its creative force, the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF), are excited for this unparalleled opportunity to bring the culture of our ancestors to our young artists of today -- to inspire, to educate and to celebrate the artistic heritage of Black History Month.
