With a focus on increasing awareness about African art and culture, The Museum for African Art is a great place to visit to get acquainted with the rich culture. Regular exhibitions by prominent and upcoming artists, educational programs and a handicraft store of ethnic African goods; are some of the features of this culturally rich museum. Currently housed in temporary Manhattan offices, the museum awaits completion of its new home by 2009. Don't despair, as ongoing exhibitions are showing at various locations in the city and around the country. Call or check the website for more details.
