2 – 4 pm
National Museum of African Art
Join guest curator Amanda Maples for a First Look tour of Good as Gold: Fashioning Senegalese Women. This is the first major exhibition of Senegalese gold jewelry to date that focuses on the history of Senegal’s gold, from past to present, and the beauty and complexity of the way Senegalese women use ornament and fashion to present themselves.
Rooted in the Wolof concept of sañse (dressing up, looking and feeling good), Good As Gold examines the production, display, and circulation of gold in Senegal as it celebrates a significant gift of gold jewelry to the National Museum of African Art collection.
Free and open to the public
