Hear Art / See Music
Presented by: The Kreeger Museum
Hear Art / See Music is a multidisciplinary program that introduces students to two African masks in the Museum's permanent collection. The students examine a Chi Wara headdress made by the Bamana people, and a Banda mask made by the Baga people and consider pattern, rhythm, and cultural traditions and practices as they explore animal symbolism in the masks and discuss when and how the masks were used in their respective communities. The students also participate in two hands-on activities: a djembe drum circle, led by a musician, and will receive instructions on how to complete a mask activity.
