Tag Archives: Sahel: Art and Empires on the Shores of the Sahara

Who’s teaching arts online in this first full covid-19 semester?

‘Nuff said — hope to be back here soon 🙂

I’ll just mention, don’t miss Sahel: Art and Empires on the Shores of the Sahara” at The Met, through October 26, 2020. An astutely organized display of intriguing objects whose creators and their cultures interacted in known and most likely still unknown ways over time throughout the Sahel (aka Central Sudan region)–as seen in intermittently shared forms, subjects, themes.
