LaNitra Berger organizes student-curated exhibit on African art

“Dynamic Dimensions: Layered Meanings in African Art” is an exhibition, curated by Mason Art History students, of African artifacts and artworks from the George Mason University permanent collection. Led by African art historian Dr. LaNitra Berger, students, spent two months using the Fine Arts Gallery as a laboratory in which to discover the essentials of researching and curating an exhibition. This project culminated in an intellectual exploration focused on the roles, functions, and meanings of pieces in the Mason African artifacts/artworks collection and furthered greatly needed scholarly research.
