"East African Splendors: Selections from the Norma Canelas and William D. Roth Collection"
2000-06-17 until 2001-05-31
Orlando Museum of Art
Orlando, FL, USA United States of America

This exhibition is the third in a series highlighting artwork of different cultural traditions throughout the African continent. Artwork from the eastern countries of Africa is very distinctive from the more familiar artwork of western Africa. Eastern Africa is geographically diverse extending from desert regions to equatorial forest regions. The pieces included in this exhibition reveal the many different materials used for creating artwork found in countries such as Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda.

Spectacular beadwork, basketry and animal hide works from cultural groups such as the Masai, Tutsi and Turkana will be included in the exhibition. Magnificent objects of adornment such as a lionís mane headdress from the Masai, finely woven basketry of Tutsi and intricate beadwork from many different cultural groups will be highlighted.

Norma Canelas and William D. Roth, owners of the collection which they have loaned to the OMA for this exhibition, have been deemed as one of the top 100 art collectors in the country by Art & Antiques magazine. The Rothís are known for their collections of ethnographic headdresses, beadwork, textiles, crafts and contemporary art. Some of the Rothís most noteworthy pieces are showcased in the exhibition East African Splendors: Selections from the Norma Canelas and William D. Roth Collection.
