description/

The Museum for African Art is one of America’s foremost institutions, devoted to both historical and contemporary African art. Mixed media exhibitions like Grass Roots: African Origins of an American Art have been a success not only at the museum itself, but also as national touring shows. The museum is currently closed to the public; it will reopen in late 2012 after it moves into a new home on Fifth Avenue near 110th Street—the first new addition to Museum Mile since the Guggenheim opened in 1959.
